Detroit’s former Mayor Dave Bing along with his mentoring program the Bing Youth Institute, hosted the 13th Annual Threads For Success event on Saturday March 23, 2019. The NBA Hall of Fame player was the keynote speaker and partner for the event. The Pistons Legend spoke to the young men about the importance of appropriate dress for business environments. He shared how during the NBA off season he interviewed for a banking position with NBD (National Bank of Deroit). He had to dress properly in order to work in a business environment. Mr. Bing also praised the number of volunteers who were present at the event.
Threads For Success is honored to have long standing volunteers from Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Detroit Rotary, Tom James Clothing, & City Year Detroit.
