Monday Mashup: Free Summer Concerts and 3 Evenings With The Arts
Less than 5 days until the Center is ready to rock another successful Free Summer Concert Series and our brand new never before seen 3 Evenings With The Arts fundraiser.
Friday (July 27) is our first Free Summer Concert show of 2012. The doors open at 6:30pm, but seating doesn’t start until 7:00pm, and its first come, first served. Comeback Buddy doesn’t take the stage until 7:30, so you’ll have plenty of time to get home, relax for a minute (maybe cool down) before you head out to see one of the best shows that CCA has to offer.
Yes, the concert is free, so you could just show up and watch the show, but we’d appreciate a little love in the form of a couple of bucks. The suggested donations are $5 per person, $10 per couple and $15 per family. Like I said, these are just suggestions, so do what feels right. The important thing is to come out, support local music and have a good time.
On Saturday (July 28) we start our first 3 Evenings With The Arts Fundraiser with Joe Bourne & Trio performing “Remembering Mr. Cole, a Tribute to Nat King Cole.” Joe is a great guy with an amazing sound, and he’s just what we need to get this fundraiser off to a running start.
But 3 Evenings With The Arts isn’t just about the show, it’s about raising money for our Connecting Kidz so that we can continue to offer an arts program to kids who may not have access to art. To do that, we’ve come up with a silent auction prizes that include:
Two Tour Tickets to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West
A Cigar Package
Phoenix Rock Gym day pass for two plus all the gear you’ll need
A Jeweled Pen Set
Two passes to Augusta Ranch Golf Club, including a cart & lunch
A Wine Package
A pack of 10 passes Stratum Laser Tag
A Cigar Box Guitar made right here in Chandler (If you’ve been to the Art Walk, you’ll have seen or heard these guitars.)
Two tickets to the Invisible Theatre
Black & White Photo Art from Heather Wilson Creates
Four passes to the Musical Instrument Museum
A limited edition Brighton Bracelet & Towel
Four tickets to an Arizona Diamondbacks game
One family pass to Desert Botanical Gardens
And a Raffle!
$5 each or 5 for $20
The Fishermans Retreat, a signed lithograph by artist Graham Foster
A Waterford Crystal Clock
Crown Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort one-night stay for 2 including breakfast
We’re also going to have wine tasting from Chateau Ste. Michelle, hors d’oeuvres and The Crawford Brothers performing in the lobby starting at 6:30. If those aren’t reasons to be here and help kids, then I don’t know what is.
See you this weekend!
