PARTY IN THE NAME OF ART! For our first annual fund-raising soiree on Friday, December 7, 2012, the Regional Arts & Culture Council is proud to honor Mayor Sam Adams for the vision, leadership and support he continues to provide for culture, creativity, education and innovation. With help from Portland’s talented arts community, we will be sending him out with all of the creative flair and vision that he has given this fair city. Book a cab, lace up your toe shoes and update your Instragram photo app, because you won’t want to miss this one!
IT ALL BEGINS WITH YU. The celebration begins on the lower level of the historic YU Building at 6:30 pm. Here, 400-plus VIP guests will gather for deliciously artful bites and cocktails, while rubbing shoulders with some special buskers – dancers, painters, musicians and more. At 8:00 pm, our patron guests will move upstairs to our version of Theater In The Clouds, complete with stage, theatre-style seating and of course, some thirst-quenching concessions! The show itself? It’s an evening our mayor Sam Adams will NEVER forget (as much as he may want to)! While our director has sworn us to secrecy, here’s a hint: think interactive surprise party. You want another one? Let’s just say that some of Portland’s most renowned dancers, singers, actors and artists are already feverishly preparing for this night. Patron tickets are $175 each. All proceeds benefit The Right Brain Initiative and Work for Art.
DANCE FEVER. At 9:00 pm we’ll open the doors on the main level for several hundred others to join the celebration with a dance party, live art installations and hi-jinx. Yes, we said hi-jinx and it will be zany, too. Both floors will be open for unique entertainment, interactive art experiences, and a disco dance or two with the Mayor. Dance party tickets are $25 each.
GOOD NIGHT! At midnight, all guests will enjoy complimentary breakfast on the upper floor as the party winds down. Feet will be sore, stomachs will be full and cabs will be plentiful.
