Big Sean & Sean Anderson Foundation to Unveil Music Production Studio Inside Boys & Girls Clubs of SE Michigan During 3rd Annual D.O.N. Weekend

Multi-platinum artist, philanthropist and BGCSM Alumni Big Sean is excited to return to Detroit for his 3rd Annual Detroit’s On Now (D.O.N.) Weekend Saturday, August 28 – Sunday, August 29.  The weekend is presented by the Sean Anderson Foundation (SAF) and hosted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan (BGCSM) and City Council President Pro-Tem Mary Sheffield and will offer free activities for all ages. COVID-19 protocols will be enforced, and attendance is limited. 

"This past year and a half has been challenging for everyone. I'm glad we can bring D.O.N. Weekend back and celebrate the people who make this city great," said Big Sean. "With all the hurdles Detroit has faced during the pandemic, it's so important to bring the city together in a positive way."

The new Reimagined Club is another strategic step to ensure Detroit youth have the tools and skills to become career, start-up and homeowner ready before leaving the Clubs at 18. The facility includes not only the new fully functional SAF content and production studio, but updated buildouts of the Ponyride co-working space for area entrepreneurs, computer lab, art gallery, 3D and laser printers, and a retail pop-up shop, similar to BGCSM’s Dauch Club on Tireman, which unveiled its Reimagined space with Big Sean in 2019. 

“Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan is proud to be the anchor partner bringing DON Weekend to Detroit neighborhoods,” said Shawn H. Wilson, president & CEO BGCSM. “On behalf of the youth and families of Detroit, we want to thank Myra and Sean for their continued support and love for the city.”

The special weekend celebrates the Detroit artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, families and long-standing institutions that are the backbone of the city. Along with the special unveiling of the SAF Studio, there will be a community block party and “Occupy the Corner" led by President Pro-Tem Mary Sheffield. Activities include live DJ, free food, live performances, COVID-19 vaccines, free haircuts and braiding, workforce one jobs, felony expungement, apprenticeship opportunities, carnival rides, gaming stations and a celebrity kickball game.

"During these difficult times it's more important than ever to stay consistent in our service to others. Combining forces with the Sean Anderson Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern for the D.O.N. Weekend and Occupy the Corner - Detroit collaboration is a perfect way to show the community, especially those in need, that there are people who care and resources available,” exclaimed Detroit City Council President Pro Tempore Mary Sheffield. “Additionally with the new reality resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, it's nice to help the community we serve and love to get a little slice of normalcy, interaction, and fun."

On Sunday, to continue strong focus on mental and physical wellness, BGCSM will be hosting Yoga on the Beach with Jamel Randall, owner of the Trap Yoga and Massage Studio Detroit and an Industry Club Fashion Show.

The weekend’s events were made possible by presenting sponsors Duo, Detroit Pistons, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Mercy Primary Care Center, Foot Locker, Fratarcangeli Wealth Management, The Mullick Foundation and TKG Business Management LLC.

Event tickets are limited due to COVID precautions but free to the public. BGCSM continues to be a safe space for youth, families and the community amid the current pandemic. Strict safety measures will be actively enforced during weekend activities.
