White Castle turns up the heat on Detroit

White Castle turns up the heat on Detroit
Cheryl Collier of White Castle joins Detroit Deputy Mayor Kirk Lewis at Patton Recreation Center - the kick off press conference in Detroit for Angel's Night.

White Castle representatives joined city officials to announce it will provide thousands of hamburgers and refreshments to Angel’s Night volunteers from October 29 – 31 .  Angel’s Night, formerly Devil’s night, was a time when fires were set throughout the city, mainly to abandoned houses.  Since then, fires have considerably decreased due to Detroit ‘s Anti-Arson campaign where thousands of volunteers keep watch during Halloween week.

In order to receive the free White Castles and refreshments, volunteers must wear the designated Angel’s Night shirts provided by the city of Detroit and go inside the White Castle restaurants to pick up food.

This is White Castle’s eighteenth year as a major sponsor for Angel’s Night. “We have always supported Detroit and continue to do so,” says White Castle Regional Director Mason Wolf .
