Promote Your Business By Donating An Auction Item to CCRA's Celebration Event
CCRA's 2017 Celebration of Center City Living fundraiser is being held this year at the Academy of Vocal Arts on Monday, May 15.  This year's theme will be "School House Rock," and a portion of the evening's proceeds will be donated to our local Greenfield Elementary School, together with many of the school-related decorations (e.g., notebooks, pencils, crayons, etc.)  Why not promote your business by donating a tax-deductible item to our silent or live auction.  Auction donors will be recognized, with their donations, on CCRA's website every day through the date of the event, weekly through a link in this newsletter, and in hard copy in both the Celebration program and our Center City Quarterly magazine.  Interested? Click here.
