ROMULUS, Mich. —

Each year Delta does a karaoke program to raise funds for Toys for Tots. This year, Delta employee AnnaMaria Barile was singing a song for her boyfriend when he appeared to join her for a duet. That's when he got down on one knee and popped the big question.

Bob Crosby, a 28-year employee for Delta who works as an analytic agent, grabbed a mic and surprised his girlfriend with a bouquet of flowers. AnnaMaria Barile, a gate agent who has worked for Delta for 20 years, was completely caught off guard. The two met on a blind date, and of course, Barile said yes!

The fundraiser is in its ninth year. During the "Sing Because You Care" Karaoke program, employees take donations to sing. The airline company has raised $4,000 to $5,000 a year for Toys for Tots during the three-day event. The program is hosted by Delta Airlines in conjunction with the Wayne County Airport Authority and Westin Hotel.
