Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (June 12, 2009)---With the Fourth of July approaching, many Americans are looking forward to fireworks, barbecues, baseball games and various other events marking the history, government and traditions of our country. As part of this celebration of history, Botsford Hospital is focusing on one of Michigan’s great treasures, the Botsford Inn and offering a special holiday discount to those who wish to join the celebration of the Inn.
For generations, families and friends celebrated special days at the Botsford Inn on Grand River Avenue in Farmington Hills – engagements, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, holidays and Sunday dinners. Built in Michigan’s pioneer days of 1836, the Inn has been witness to more than 170 years of Michigan history. Its current owner, Botsford Hospital, has restored the Inn’s exterior to its 1925 Henry Ford era appearance.
The Botsford Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Botsford Hospital, is inviting members of the community to purchase a commemorative brick in the plaza directly outside the Inn honoring a special event, person or memory. A purchase of a brick will help to write a new chapter in the history of the Inn by supporting the renovation and restoration of its interior.
Bricks include a personalized inscription and will be available for purchase only in 2009. 4” x 8” bricks are $250 and 8” x 8” bricks are $400. To celebrate America’s 233rd birthday, Botsford is offering a $50 discount on these prices through Friday, July 31. For more information on how you can honor or remember a loved one with a brick and to receive your discount, please call (248) 442-5065 or visit www.botsford.org. Facebook users can also join the group “Botsford Inn Commemorative Brick Plaza” to reminisce about the Inn, post photos or share stories.
Funds from Botsford Hospital will not be used for the renovation of the Botsford Inn. All money for this project will be raised through community support.
