About the Detroit Discovery Ball

The Detroit Discovery Ball is the American Cancer Society's premiere Detroit gala that emerged in 2020 after the need to rebrand our long standing Detroit Cattle Baron's Ball. The first annual Detroit Discovery Ball began virtually in the midst of the pandemic, the second annual event was hosted at the beautiful Eastern Market, Shed 3 and most recently was held at Huntington Place in Detroit. This year, we are excited to host the fourth annual Detroit Discovery Ball at The Fillmore Detroit.
