When you see Sydni Jones she always has a smile on face, and it’s clear that she takes her physical fitness very serious.

She’s easily one of Detroit’s most popular socialites and I understand why. Sydni is gorgeous, funny and a lot of fun to be around.

One day last year I saw a post on Facebook where she revealed that she had a TIA- Transient Ischemic Attack. Basically, Sydni had a mild stroke. I didn’t understand this because she’s in great shape so I was confused but happy she was okay.

A message from Arthur Bricker


I want to thank all of the loyal customers that I have met over the years at my store. I’ve been involved in the fur business my entire adult life. I learned the basics of the fur trade from my father, Jacob Bricker who founded the store in 1916. Instead of pursuing my first career choice to become a lawyer, I instead joined my father in business. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The wonderful people I have met along the way have included numerous Motown stars, Hollywood actors and actresses, professional athletes, elected officials, and professionals from every walk of life. I feel blessed to work in a business that I love, and I appreci...

However, after a series of events that cost Holmes a lot both financially and emotionally, she made may have wished that she never won the lottery in the first place.

Nobody Better Deserved to Win the Lottery
