Overdrive Autoglow

WHEN: JANUARY 15, 2016 8 PM-1 AM



Overdrive Autoglow is an exclusive, elegant evening celebrating excellence and automotive success, driven by Detroit's leading industry professionals and influencers. Overdrive Autoglow will bring young leaders together to celebrate Detroit's automotive resurgence, connect with world-changing thinkers and innovators, contribute to an awesome cause, and enjoy a night of great dining and entertainment. 


In the last 5 years, our automotive industry has experienced an amazing comeback, creating over 500,000 new jobs and producing cars with groundbreaking design, technology and safety. This growth would not be possible without the tireless, innovative work of millennial engineers and execs in the industry. Overdrive Autoglow is an opportunity to highlight their effort, connect them with other world-class automotive industry leaders and business professionals, and provide them with an opportunity to give back to the youth that will follow in their footsteps.


CLUBHAUS Detroit has partnered with Mercedes-Benz of St. Clair Shores and The Horatio Williams Foundation to bring this phenomenal experience to life.

Mercedes-Benz is one of the highest-selling luxury automakers in the world. Like Ford, Dodge, and Chrysler, Mercedes-Benz has experienced stellar growth in the past few years using a similar tactic of rolling out new, innovative car models to compete with other industry leaders. Given these similarities, CLUBHAUS Detroit believes that Mercedes-Benz provides our audience with unmatched opportunities to network, invest and expand their horizons.

The Horatio Williams Foundation (HWF) is a Detroit 501(c)(3) organization that uses developmental leadership and mentoring to assist Detroit Metropolitan youth in achieving personal and professional success. This partnership will connect Detroit’s leaders to individuals working within our community to ensure that our youth can follow in their innovative footsteps. Proceeds from Overdrive Autoglow will be donated to HWF. 

Overdrive Autoglow is for leaders of all ages, with particular emphasis on Detroit’s millennials. This group of powerhouse professionals has already had an unarguable effect on the resurgence of the automotive industry and the city itself - through their professional endeavors and buying power. Engaging them in this night of celebration will allow for an unmatched intergenerational, cross-sector networking and expose this group to new opportunities professionally, personally, and fiscally. 

Join us as we toast to the automotive excellence of the past, present and future.
