  • Fairlane Dinner Dance “Racing Forward”                                        This year, we’ve introduced a new component to this year’s Fair Lane
    Dinner Dance, that I think may be of interest to you. For over 30 years, our
    annual Dinner Dance has raised much needed funds to support our work to
    restore and re-imagine Fair Lane – Home of Clara and Henry Ford.
    To celebrate Ford Motor Company’s history of racing and its continued
    success at NASCAR, we have embraced a theme of “Racing Forward”. As
    you may know, in 1901, Henry Ford successfully started the Ford Motor
    Company only after he beat Alexander Winton in his racing car,
    “Sweepstakes.” This victory gave Henry instant notoriety and helped him
    secure the necessary financial backing to launch what became the Ford
    Motor Company – and, as they say, the rest is history!
    Last year, when Joey Logano won the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup
    Series at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Ford racing was once again at the
    forefront. At this year’s event, you will be able to see, side-by-side, replicas
    of both Henry Ford’s Sweepstakes and Joey Logano’s No.22 Ford Fusion.
    Joey’s car, an autographed replica, will be displayed along with his signed
    uniform and helmet. Thanks to the support of Dean Green, the vehicle will
    be auctioned off later this summer at the Greensboro Auto Auction, with all
    proceeds benefitting the restoration and re-imagination of the historic home
    of Clara and Henry Ford.
    I hope you will join us as we “Race Forward” in support of Fair Lane for a
    very special evening, on Friday, April 5th in Dearborn! For additional requests, please call 313.453.2043 or email

  • Real estate professionals put themselves at risk every day. Meeting new unknown clients, showing properties, holding open houses, and letting strangers into their cars can jeopardize their personal safety. In fact, according to a recent survey of 450 real estate agents, 42 percent of female agents and 18 percent of male agents said they have felt unsafe in the course of their job.
    That’s why when Dearborn Area Board of Realtors (DABOR) asked DFCU Financial to help fund ongoing safety efforts and classes for their member realtors, DFCU’s Mortgage Services readily agreed.
    At a recent presentation for 100 realtors sponsored by DFCU, Carl Carter Jr., son of kidnapped and murdered real estate agent Beverly Carter and a realtor himself, told of this shocking crime and gave detailed tips for realtors to stay safe. Mortgage Loan Officers Wendy Hewitt and Roxanne Daniel gave opening remarks at this event.
    DFCU Financial will sponsor other realtor safety programs in 2018, including a self-defense class, as part of ongoing efforts to protect these valued partners
