MISSION AND HISTORY
The Maltese American Benevolent Society, Inc. (M.A.B.S.I.) is a benevolent society situated in the heart of Corktown, Detroit that's main purpose is to promote the advancement of the Maltese American Community in the Metro Detroit and surrounding areas, as well as educate and welcome any other ethnicity to join and participate in our family oriented club.
2020 is the 80th anniversary of the club, however the club has been situated in it's current location since 1963. The club consists of a bar/lounge area, rental hall (large and small) as well as several means of entertainment. We pride ourselves on our gatherings with the largest and most ornate being the Festa Il-Vitorja (Il-Bambina) celebrated on 8 September in Malta, however, our celebration is always the weekend following Labor Day at our club in Detroit. We start our event at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church at 11:00 a.m. with the annual blessing and procession of our statue. After mass we move to our club where you can purchase delightful Maltese foods and souvenirs including, but not limited to: Kinnie, Rabbit Stew, Baked Macaroni, traditional sweets, t-shirts, hats and other items.
MABSI's main commitment is to promote awareness of the Maltese Heritage as well as help the Maltese American Community in the Detroit and surrounding areas maintain and promote the heritage we all share.
As always, should you have any questions regarding the club, or membership do not hesitate to ask. We at MABSI are always at your service. You can easily contact us via email, writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
