Cars & Cigars Smoke Detroit 2024

Hosted by Detroit entrepreneurs Tom Celani and Dario Bergamo, the sold-out 10th annual Cars & Cigars Smoke Detroit took place on June 6 at the Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill in Sterling Heights. More than 1,800 participants enjoyed an exotic car show in the park, a reception with cigars, live music, appetizers, and beverages (including wine from Celani Family Vineyards), a sit-down dinner served by Cameron Mitchell Restaurants and the Chef Bobby Nahra Group, presentations, and a live auction. Proceeds will benefit the Cigar Family School in the Dominican Republic and the Celani Charitable Foundation, which works with local Detroit charities like Gleaners Community Food Bank and the Capuchin Soup Kitchen. // Photographs by Patrick Gloria
