We are so excited to formally welcome Lex Draper to the Living Arts team! Lex will be working closely with Director of Development Tara Tuomaala and the event committee planning the next iteration of our annual event (Save the Date for April 23, 2020).
Living Arts is searching for a contract event planner to help us execute our April 2020 event!
The contractor will manage all aspects of this annual event including venue negotiation, budget development and management, event committee coordination, invitations and RSVPs, and program development with guidance from Living Arts’ Development Director.
Last Thursday April 11th, Living Arts celebrated a milestone 20th anniversary in the Crystal Ballroom of the historic Detroit Masonic Temple. Kicking off the evening with a step and repeat welcome, guests were invited to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the reception area and to explore the gallery of 20 years of Living Arts work. VIP guests were treated to swag bags filled with goodies from hand tie-dyed towels to chocolates from Bon Bon Bon, a private lounge area, and a tour of the Masonic Temple.
We are beyond grateful for the support that we’ve received for our 20th anniversary. As part of our recent series on getting to know our sponsors, we recently did a quick Q&A with Ronald Cresswell, of the Cresswell Family Foundation. Mr. Cresswell and his wife, Sheila, have been long-time lovers of the arts, and have supported the arts through their foundation. Below is a transcript of our interview. Many thanks to the Cresswell Family Foundation for their continued support of Detroit arts and youth development!
