“You get the vibe that the dots are starting to connect.” – Chuck Gaidica

Cody High School, founded in 1955, and the surrounding neighborhood of Cody Rouge is in an area of Detroit that has seen better days. But a group called “Life Remodeled” wants to change that, one school at a time, and you can be at the premiere of their documentary this Sunday.

Doors open for the premiere of “Cody High: A Life Remodeled Project” at 4:00 pm Sunday (with the screening at 5:30) at the historic Redford Theater which is located at 17360 Lahser Road in Detroit. This 90-minute film highlights the progress made at this west side neighborhood high school in partnership with community groups, the district, and corporations. It shows what can be done if folks actually work together.

But why this area just off of the Southfield Freeway and a little south of I-96?

We are often asked, “Why Cody?” The answer is simple: Need + Hope. Our criteria for choosing Detroit neighborhoods is summed up in those two words. Every neighborhood we invest in must have the combination of both.

Check out the trailer above and see the impact for yourself. If you’re interested in going, tickets to the premiere are $20 and VIP (which include a photo on the red carpet) are $40. More here and tickets are available on the Redford Theatre website.
