(Brighton, MI) – Hollywood stars mingled with socially conscious entrepreneurs at a gala fundraiser in Hollywood last week, and two local Brighton business owners were on the red carpet. Sandi Maki and Al Curtis, owners of Legendary Escapes Pools and founders of the Insights Group, attended the 5th annual “Rock the Kasbah” event, and met hosts Richard and Eve Branson. More than $600,000 was raised at the event to support the efforts of the Eve Branson Foundation and Virgin Unite, two non-profits working for social change via economic opportunities. Maki and Curtis are well-known in Livingston County for their social networking and business development work, where they not only run their own successful businesses, but invest their time and efforts to help other area entrepreneurs build their dreams. Their invitation to the event helps build exposure for SE Michigan and the vibrant business mindset that is continuing to build here.
