On Thursday, Cinco de Mayo, the nonprofit hosted the LA SED 2022 Annual Recognition Luncheon at MGM Grand Detroit after a three-year gathering break due to COVID-19.

The event honored local difference-makers and also celebrated 57 years of community service to Southeastern Michigan.

Mary Culler, president of the Ford Fund, delivered the keynote address and four people were named 2022 LA SED honorees: Dr. José Cuello, Rita Solis, Andrew Posada and Frank Venegas.
