We did it!!!!!

I am so incredibly excited to say that with 7 hours left we reached our goal of $5,500.  Ping Pong is here to stay in Detroit with a little bit of class and style too.  

Your generosity will allow for us to accomplish so much and make Drive Table Tennis Social Club a staple in the Downtown Detroit community.

Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you.  Now let's get ready to party at our Grand Opening on December 18.  More to come stay tuned!!

For the love of pong,

35 hours to go. Grand Opening Event date pushed back.

Hello to all!

With 35 hours left we are only $2000 away from our campaign goal of $5500.  We're almost there and we're confident we'll get it!

We are thankful for the generous support of those who have supported us along the way.  The attention has been so overwhelming that we will be pushing back our Grand Opening event to Friday January 18 to accomodate the crowd.  The Detroit News and other media outlets want to do pieces on our grand opening event and a lot of that is because of the buzz that all of you have created.

Thank you so much for the generosity and support.  We're almost there! Let's Go!
