Alexandria Benefit Performance


Many arts groups throughout Alexandria already do some city engagements at no charge (both the holiday and spring market place/parks performance series as examples), and I'm sure that it would be easy to have a local benefit concert/performance where tickets can be sold/donations made where funds can be raised.  Profits can go entirely to one local cause or divided amoungst performers, non-profits who donate time/efforts, and multiple local causes agreed upon ahead of time.  An intermission can include a few big auction items where we can ask small businesses through the Chamber to donate items or a silent auction can be held simultatiously online or in the concert hall.  Though tickets would be sold, there can also be a block of seats for senior groups or school groups to bring them in and give them the feeling of a nice weekend event at no cost and see that participating in the arts is a way to give back to the community both emotionally and financially.


Love This Idea!
