The Buck Dinner (89th Annual)



The purpose of the Buck Dinner is to raise funds for peace, justice, equality and “To give money and moral support to people and organizations involved in ongoing struggles and who are unlikely to obtain aid from conventional sources.” — Maurice Sugar, one of the founders of the Buck Dinner and a legendary figure in Detroit labor and civil rights communities

The Buck Dinner has funded hundreds of organizations and causes since its beginnings in 1929. This unique annual gathering in Metro-Detroit, Michigan, has grown to some 800 attendees. The Buck Dinner raises funds to provide grants to organizations and programs that work for social justice.

Attendance at this event is by invitation.
