Crain’s Detroit Business posted the summary of a radio program called, “Caring For Kids” (hold on, I have a point here), and Ken Daniels and Lisa Daniels-Goldman were two of the participants in the program. This part is important in terms of a) where the Jamie Daniels Foundation is going and b) the Celebrity Roast of Mickey Redmond, which takes place this upcoming Saturday at the MotorCity Casino:
Burns: Where do you want the foundation to be in two years?
Daniels: Digging a hole in the ground where we’ll build the recovery center.
Jamie was in a safe place until he was patient brokered and wound up in a place that wasn’t safe. Our goal is to build—with the help of Michigan State Housing Development, our foundation and some great people—a long-term, safe sober living place. It’s a place that’s going to have job placement and all meetings on site. Addicts need direction every day. That’s my vision: to build a recovery home so others don’t have to go through what Jamie went through.
Burns: Tell us about the inaugural Jamie Daniels Foundation Celebrity Roast.
Daniels-Goldman: We’re roasting Mickey Redmond. He obviously has very strong shoulders, but I’m not sure if he knows what he’s in for.
Along with the roast we have an online silent auction that you can register for and start bidding on now. The roast is on Saturday, September 7 at Motor City Casino Soundboard. It includes a live auction too.
Visit Jamiedanielsfoundation.org for tickets and to register for the silent auction.
