Akouri Joins Azimuth Capital Management, LLC Founder & Managing Partner Ted Haddad at March of Dimes Gala Honoring Jack Krasula

DETROIT - Lebanese American Chamber of Commerce CEO John Akouri was the guest of Azimuth Capital Management, LLC Founder and Managing Partner Ted N. Haddad last night at the March of Dimes Gala honoring Jack Krasula. The event drew more than 300 people from the Detroit area to honor Krasula. Celebrity co-hosts for the evening included WJR AM-760 talk show host Frank Beckman and WDIV-TV4 anchorwoman Karen Drew. Renown jazz performer Alexander Zonjic entertained the crowd at the Renaissance Center's Wintergarden. The March of Dimes chose to honor Krasula for his work with the organization by giving him the 2007 John Dingell Hero for Babies award. The ceremony was part of the nonprofit's sixth annual Signature Chefs Auction, proceeds from which support the organization's mission to prevent birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Krasula is known to most people as the host of the hour-long WJR Sunday evening show Anything is Possible.
