 AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- ITT Automotive, a global automotive supplier based in Auburn Hills, will serve as title sponsor of the ITT Automotive AutoGlow charity dinner to take place Friday, Jan. 7, on the river at The Roostertail Club in Detroit. All proceeds will benefit The Children's Center, a non-profit organization which serves more than 4,000 high-risk children and youth in the Detroit area, including the homeless, abused or chemically dependent.
 Timothy D. Leuliette, president and chief executive officer, ITT Automotive, will chair the event. Leuliette also serves as co-chair for The Children's Center capital campaign.
 "The Children's Center theme of 'Help Us Build Hope' is a cornerstone philosophy behind ITT Automotive's involvement with the Detroit community," Leuliette said.
