SPONSOR BENEFITS

Our updated sponsorship benefits listing is attached for your review.  Please review and advise if any of this is out of synch.

  • We took down the number of drink tickets at the various levels.
  • We added an on-site advertising component as a benefit for sponsors to display logos.
    • Can we have your tech group add two larger video screens to the budget with a laptop linked for this display?
    • Does Fifth Avenue have another set of internal screens that we can access as well?
  • We ran into a snag with direct Royal Oak vendor engagement but have a work-around.  Our committee is creating our sponsorship target / follow-up lists now.
  • With your review and approval of the attached sponsorship benefits, Christopher Bower, copied here, will have his team create our sponsorship collateral (a PDF), and Jill will begin setting up our Blackbaud Tapestry software to become the online source for sponsors or ticket-buyers to go online and purchase.
  • Our plan is to launch all announcements, sponsorship brochures, and open our website for sponsorship purchase / ticketing on June 30.
Arts Beats & Eats on 5th

In its second year, Arts, Beats & Eats on 5th will confirm what the first year’s event forecast: it’s the premiere event of the season; a charity preview of all that the annual Labor Day weekend Arts Beats and Eats festival has to offer.

From 5:30 to 6:30 Royal Oak civic and business leaders meet and greet the guests of event sponsors and holders of VIP tickets. (You might also be surprised to encounter county, state and federal leaders, all of whom are invited.)  The festivities continue from 6:30 to 8:30 with the strolling dinner, craft cocktails and mocktails, entertainment and exclusive shopping with festival artisans.

The party happens under summer skies on Fifth Street in Royal Oak, between Washington and Center Streets. In case of rain, the fun will not abate; it will move into the adjacent Fifth Avenue nightclub.

Sponsors of the event enjoy dedicated seating, marketing recognition, and VIP ticket packages. Individuals can choose VIP tickets or general admission tickets.

This year we’ve offered six local charities the opportunity to sell event tickets and keep the profits. They are Blessings in a Backpack, Metro Detroit Youth Clubs, Outreach on 7th, Royal Oak Football Club, the Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce scholarship committee, and Stagecrafters.

Arts Beats & Eats on 5th event will run from 5:30 pm to 8:30 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 22nd, 2024.
