Alumni Face-off Event
The Alumni Face-off was an event I put together to make a difference in a student athletes life today and tomorrow. Learn more about it here on facebook, or read the article from the Observer below.
Inaugural RU Alumni Face-off nets success
Thank you again for all those that supported via attendance, donations, sponsorship and good ol’ fashion word of mouth. We netted over $1,700 for Redford Union High School to be split between student/athletic resources, it’s a start. I am not sure how long this link will be archived with the Redford Observer & Eccentric Newspaper so I have copied and pasted the entire article as well. Thank you must go to Ed Wright for writing the piece and Rena Laverty for her wonderful captures.
The most important numbers that were generated by the soccer game played at Kraft Field Friday night weren’t the ones on the scoreboard. In the inaugural Redford Union Alumni Face-off, Team 2K+ edged Team ‘90s, 3-2, in a well-played thriller pitting former Panther student/athletes. But the final result took a backseat to the amount of money raised — an estimated $1,700 — for the school’s athletic and academic programs. Among those who spearheaded the event was RU grad Mike Dadourian (Class of ‘99), who also took to the pitch for Team 90s. “We had a really nice turnout; I’m very happy with how everything went,” said Dadourian. “I’m used to planning events, but I was more nervous in the week leading up to this one than I usually am. What was really nice was seeing how many families walked through the gate together.”
Dadourian said he and former RU student-athletes Chris Jackett and Tony Mamo developed the idea for the fund-raiser/fun-raiser to help offset the current financial crisis that is affecting the school district. “It’s hard seeing all the cuts that are being made,” Dadourian sighed. “We wanted to try and do something that would help the district now — not down the road. We will present the check to the district with the hopes that 50 percent of the money goes toward needs for the athletic department and 50 percent goes toward needed improvements on the academic side. For instance, I’d like to see some of it go toward the library at RU.” In addition to the gate receipts, money was raised from a 50/50 raffle and straight donations. “The guy who won the 50/50 tonight donated his half to the cause,” Dadourian revealed. “Seeing things like that really makes you feel good.” Dadourian said the event wouldn’t have been the success it was without the help of several volunteers, including Jeff Shuk and Jim Gibbs, who served as coaches. The crowd was treated to an entertaining game in which neither team led by more than one goal. “Both teams had an incredible number of good chances to score,” Dadourian noted, “but the goal-keepers were outstanding. It was a well-played game.”
Dadourian said the success of Friday night’s success cemented plans for future alumni contest. “We were originally going to try different sports each year, but it sounds like a lot of people want the soccer game back again next year,” he said. “We may try to do a couple of events a year — maybe flag football and soccer. Whatever it takes to help out the school.”

A Letter From Redford Supervisor Tracey Kobylarz
Dear Mr. Dadourian and other interested parties:
Please accept this letter of recommendation which is enthusiastically written on behalf of one of Redford Township’s finest residents and community activists, Michael Dadourian. I consider his request for me to write this letter of recommendation as an honor.
It is impossible to list the attributes that define Michael as a selfless and dedicated resident in our township. We have had the pleasure to work together in several community events, one of which was his brain-child. The Redford Union Alumni Face-Off Fundraiser that Michael arranged was the first of its kind and was a huge success.
When I was elected to the position of Township Supervisor in 2008, I made attempts to reach out and work with people who seemed to have political or personal opinions that differ from my own. These experiences taught me that there is only one value that really matters; doing the best and most we can to honor and better our community. Michael does that and does it well.
I have gained a respect for his ideas and his willingness to engage in fair and honest discussion while leaving his mind open to differing points of view and new ideas. Mr. Dadourian’s ability to communicate effectively with elected officials and the community as a whole while providing a quiet and reliable style of leadership is commendable.
I have no doubt that Michael will bring a level of thoughtful and deliberate energy to your project or work place and his presence on any of your teams will enhance your overall environment. If I can answer any further questions regarding his ability, please call me directly.
