Announcing New Sponsorship Opportunity for New Annual Fundraiser “Ladder 12 Art Auction: DAM Gala 1”

Posted on June 26, 2015 at 2:26

Dear Friends,

We are happy to announce the Ladder 12 Art Auction: DAM Gala 1, a first-of-a-kind fundraiser to support our mission. We greatly appreciate your support for this new DAM tradition. Please review the sponsorship options, and we hope that you can join us on Saturday, October 3, 7-11 p.m. at the historic Ladder Company #12 fire station in Corktown.

Ladder 12 Art Auction: DAM Gala 1 revolves around a special art exhibition that honors DAM’s history of supporting artists at different stages of their careers. We have paired together some of Detroit’s most regarded established artists with some of its most talented emerging artists. Teams of two will combine aesthetics and collaborate to create original works of art for a one-night exhibition. We are honored to have WDIV news anchor Devin Scillian as our guest auctioneer. Mr Scillian will auction off works of art, and the proceeds will benefit the artists, in addition to supporting DAM.

The Ladder 12 Art Auction makes creative use of this unique location by splitting the night’s entertainment between a festive outdoor space and the interior of a classic ladder company, where for more than 70 years Detroit firefighters were at the ready. The event will include a strolling supper with a selection of hors-d’oeuvres and signature cocktails, live music, and a silent auction featuring products and services from Detroit-area organizations.

 Sponsors committed before July 31, 2015 will be included on the Ladder 12 invitations, which are mailed to more than 4,000 DAM supporters and e-mailed to 3,000 addresses. All sponsors will receive tickets and have logo recognition at the event. Thank you for your consideration of this request. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact me or Dalia Reyes at 313-832-8540.

Sincerely,

Matt Fry
