Society for Excellence

S4E.gif The Society for Excellence was established to recognize individuals who have contributed $1000 or more annually to support programming on WTVS Detroit Public Television.

The Society's mission is to bring members together for unique experiences that celebrate public television's commitment to educate, entertain and inspire.

Through their leadership, Society for Excellence members also serve as ambassadors for Detroit Public TV, encouraging others to join this effort to use the power of media to provide knowledge and understanding.

bravoDYC.jpg On June 13, 2013, we gathered, once again, to celebrate new friendships and renew old acquaintances at the historic Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle.  The annual Bravo dinner is our way of saying thank you to our growing list of Society for Excellence major donors.

lovestudio2.jpg During dinner, we presented a 12-minute video, produced in-house specifically for the Bravo dinner, featuring DPTV staff members who express their thoughts about what it means to be part of the public television mission and why donor support is the essential element behind the programs you love.

Watch the video here for this “behind the scenes” look with some remarkably creative people.   

You may also enjoy viewing some photos from the Bravo event.
