POLISH THE JEWEL
In 2020 we've witnessed the world change. And as a result, the way that we gather to celebrate the people, places, and things that bring us joy is vastly different from what modern society has been accustomed to. One thing that has not changed with the onset of the pandemic, though, is our team's dedication to our mission to serve Belle Isle and the park users who love Detroit's jewel. In fact, the challenges that we've had to face this year have pushed us to work even harder.
Being outdoors has been a relief for so many during this time. We've been able to witness how our connection to nature has healing qualities, and how this has been a main source of solace as the world has coped with a devastating circumstance. And for us, that remains the silver lining in such a dark cloud. Knowing that our mission to protect, preserve, and restore this beloved space can make a difference in the quality of the lives of our visitors.
Join us at this year's virtual event, as we celebrate Belle Isle and raise funds to support our cause to do our part to maintain "Detroit's Backyard" for the greater good of the community. We have an exciting engagement in store for you that will bring Belle Isle to the comfort of your home. Formal event details to follow. Sponsorship opportunities and advance Benefactor tickets are available now!

About the Polish the Jewel Belle Isle Legacy Luncheon
Since 2005, Belle Isle’s most prominent supporters, including the area’s top business and civic leaders, have shared their passion for Belle Isle Park during the annual Polish the Jewel Belle Isle Legacy Luncheon. Dressed in their favorite shoes, chapeaus and jewels, more than 400 women – and a few men – from across Metro Detroit attend Polish the Jewel to share their favorite memories of Detroit’s beloved island gem, as well as raise funds to maintain the park’s sparkle. Past luncheons have supported the replacement of the historic horse stable roofing and renovations to Sunset Point.
