Charitable Fundraising in the Metro Detroit Area

In 2014, the Celani Family Foundation was formed by Tom and Vicki Celani as a charity dedicated to addressing the needs of youth and fighting hunger. The Celani Family Foundation started the Cars and Cigars Smoke Detroit event in June of 2014 and then the Hunger Free in the D radiothon in November of 2014. The two events have raised over $2 Million in charitable donations to support underprivileged youth and fight hunger.

Mission Statement

The Celani Family Foundation is a non-profit organization created by community philanthropists Tom and Vicki Celani, to help support and provide resources to local families in need. The Celani Family Foundation is dedicated to bringing community awareness to issues facing the underprivileged, especially premature babies and abused children. Through its fundraising efforts, the Celani Family Foundation strives to assist the underprivileged in Detroit and the surrounding metro area.
