Chelsea Menswear Donates Money From Kid Rock's Made-in-Detroit Sales to High School Music Department

Chelsea Menswear is donating a portion of Kid Rock's Made-in-Detroit brand sales to the Roosevelt High School Music Department.

Chelsea Menswear will donate 10 percent of Made-in-Detroit brand sales through the end of the year to the Roosevelt High School Music Department. 

Made-in-Detroit, owned by Kid Rock, is known for making donations to local charities.

Kid Rock recently donated money to the Wyandotte Marching Chiefs after they performed with him on Thanksgiving day for the Lion's halftime show.

The band incurred $2,400 in transportation costs getting to and from rehearsals, leading up to the big day. When Kid Rock learned about the money the band needed,

Peter Rose, owner of Chelsea Menswear, said the store owners and employees were moved by Kid Rock's generosity.

"We were inspired by Kid Rock paying for their transportation to play on the field with him. It was a nice thing to do and we want to continue doing something nice," Rose said.

 The music teachers at Roosevelt High School said they are thankful to Chelsea Menswear for their support.

"This is a win-win fundraiser," Mark D'Angelo, band director, said.

"Seeing how Kid Rock's Made-in-Detroit apparell sales typically fund his charitable efforts throughout the Detroit area, participating in this campaign will help boost these sales out of Wyandotte and be able to provide a donation to the music program."

Rose said customers just need to mention the music department when making a purchase and the money will be turned over to the school.

I love the Roses! Thanks Peter - once again, for all that you and your family do for the City of Wyandotte! The Marching Band made us all proud - it is great that their budget can be increased by your generosity...
