PATRON TICKETS (for dance party tickets visit racc.org/party)
I CANNOT ATTEND BUT I WANT TO DONATE
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!
There are two ticket options:
PATRON RECEPTION, $175: The celebration begins on the lower level of the historic YU Building at 6:30 pm. Here, 400 VIP guests will gather for deliciously artful bites, a special HOPWORKS URBAN BREW, and locally crafted cocktails. Enjoy the music of Grupo Condor while rubbing shoulders with dancers, painters and musicians. At 8:00 pm, our patron guests will move upstairs to our version of Theater In The Clouds, complete with theatre-style seating and a cabaret tribute that our mayor Sam Adams will NEVER forget (as much as he may want to)! The interactive farewell celebration includes Storm Large, Julianne Johnson, Bodyvox, The Circus Project, PHAME Academy, Scott Poole and the Portland Flash Choir, plus video appearances by Fred Armisen, Curious Comedy Theater, Cheryl Strayed, Darcelle, and many more. Enjoy complimentary dessert after the show, courtesy of Cupcake Jones and Salt & Straw. And stay for dance party afterwards as our guest!
DANCE PARTY, $25: 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 few dances with the Mayor, including salsa, electric slide, hip hop and Bollywood. Featuring DJ PRASHANT, DJ EVAN ALEXANDER, Poison Waters, Anansi Beat, Boombots, Isaac Trimble, Axe Dide Samba, The Sexbots, Sabor Latino, Clay Hoffman, The Sliders, and other surprise performances throughout the evening. Paint our interactive mural with Chris Haberman, receive an arts prescription at our Art Apothecary, and get creative at our stop-motion Stop-Motion Animation Station. Come one, come all -- dance party tickets are only $25 each and include complimentary breakfast at midnight.
GOOD NIGHT! At midnight, all guests will enjoy complimentary breakfast on the upper floor, courtesy of Burgerville. As the party winds down after midnight, feet will be sore, stomachs will be full and cabs will be plentiful.
