Arts Council hosts Night in Morocco at GL Lodge

Cathy Walton-Smith
President, Grand Arts Council

We at the Grand Arts Council are always taking bold steps into the future of art and creativity… with our community in mind.

This fall, we have a special event coming up, and the only thing missing from making it perfect, is a little bit of help from you.

The Grand Arts Council will host a fundraising dinner with entertainment at the Grand Lake Lodge on Saturday, Sept. 11. This will be the only dinner served to the public at the Grand Lake Lodge this year, and it promises to be the premier Grand Lake summer finale.

A Night in Morocco will feature authentic food and belly dancers. There will also be a cash bar and silent auction. The Lodge is generously donating the use of its restaurant for this event, which can accommodate up to 185 people for dinner. The dinner will be catered by Sherry Kent and Showboat Catering. Tickets are $100 per couple or $55 per single.

The Grand Arts Council is looking for $300 sponsors to help defray the costs of putting the event together. Sponsorship benefits will include:

• Sponsor mention in all advertising

• Sponsor mention on poster -150 or more distributed throughout Grand County

• Sponsor mention on back of dinner ticket – up to 185 to be sold

• Sponsor mention on Grand Arts Council website

• Sponsor mention on all internet and email announcements

• Sponsor mention on menu placed on each table

• Sponsor recognition and introduction the at the dinner

• The option to offer a flier or business card for guests to pick up at the event

• 2 Dinner tickets

Sponsors may also opt to remain anonymous

The Grand Arts Council is a 501(c)3 charitable organization serving Grand County in promoting, supporting and enjoying the arts. The dancers providing entertainment at this event are donating their talents and looking forward to this opportunity to perform.

The Grand Lake Lodge is donating the venue for this event and Showboat Catering is donating a portion of the cost of the dinner and staff for this event. There is a committee of hard working volunteers committed to making this event a success. Your tax deductible sponsorship will help to defray the remaining costs of making this event successful.

Items for the silent auction will also be gratefully accepted. Funds raised from this event will benefit the Grand Arts Council in their efforts to provide more arts-oriented events, education, and completion of the Grand Arts Center in Grand Lake. We hope to have some tickets and posters printed soon and will be updating with added sponsors. Please call me with your commitment.

Your continued support for the Grand Arts Council is much appreciated. I look forward to seeing you at the dinner. Thank you.
