Arts Beats & Eats Information and Sponsorship Levels
Arts Beats & Eats on 5th event will run from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
For the first hour, sponsors’ guests and $100 ticket holders will attend a VIP reception with civic and business leaders. Holders of $50 tickets enter at 6:30 pm on August 24th, 2023.
Attendees at the August 24, 2023, festival preview party, Arts Beats & Eats on 5th, will dine at food trucks and groove to festival musicians while mingling with local civic and business leaders. The event is a fundraiser for the Royal Oak Civic Foundation.
The foundation made a splash last spring, announcing the receipt of $250,000 for trees, plants, and equipment for the Royal Oak Arboretum. Additionally, since its creation, the foundation has directed more than $250,000 to fund community programs and senior transportation, address food insecurity during the pandemic, help kids during the holidays and replace the piano at the senior center.
“People who want to give to the city of Royal Oak can give through the foundation to assure tax deductibility and accountability,” said foundation Chair Tom McGannon. “In our first few years, much of our giving has been with donor-directed funds. Trustees will use the proceeds from this event to give discretionary grants to meet Royal Oak’s greatest needs.”
The party will take place on 5th Street between Washington and Center. All guests will receive beverage tickets and have access to a cash bar. If it rains, festivities will move into the adjacent 5th Avenue bar. Food options and entertainers will be announced later.
