*Support Contemporary Art Center
We are in a more precarious state financially than last year and need extra help! The pandemic has caused us to offer less events, partly due to low attendance. 25% revenue last year and this year. A major missing revenue source continues to be $30-40,000/year from private gallery rentals. While this side of the business is picking up, we probably won’t see rental revenue return to former levels until 2023.
People often assume that resuming public events means that we are doing well. Honestly, most events don’t make money! That is why sponsorships are so important. Sponsorship can take on many forms and levels. Make an appointment today with William to discuss the possibilities.
**Cousin Eddie Concert Experience
Win a personal concert experience! The prize includes a 3-hour concert at a Central Illinois (within 50 miles of Peoria) location of the winner’s choice, at your home on the patio or a public space. Requirements include: access to electricity, a solid, level, dry area for equipment and other needs that the band and the winner may need to negotiate. Stand ins can bid on behalf of those not in attendance. The winner or the stand in must be prepared to pay the winning amount that evening.
Raffle items will also be offered during the event. Raffle tickets are $5 each or 5 tickets for $20. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event but may also be purchased prior to the event only at Contemporary Art Center. One does not need to be in attendance to win, but it would be more fun!
