On Monday, May 21st from 5:30- 8:30pm hundreds of people who prefer beautiful views over dirt lots will gather for a fundraising event, Turning Brown Lots Green benefiting the Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation. The Roosevelt Row CDC is a mostly volunteer organization that works to beautify and promote downtown Phoenix’s Roosevelt Row neighborhood.
Phoenix City Councilman Tom Simplot says, “An area like Roosevelt Row makes a city unique. The Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation does a great deal to support the artists, businesses and residents of the area.”
Roosevelt Row is a walkable, creative district in the urban core of downtown Phoenix that is nationally known for its arts and cultural events, award-winning restaurants, galleries, boutiques and live music. The Roosevelt Row CDC is fostering an urban renewal with rehabilitated bungalows and new infill projects.
Councilman Simplot says, “The fundraising event, Turning Brown Lots Green, is one of my favorite events of the year! I can get involved and be part of an organization that does a lot to create a buzz about what’s unique and special about downtown Phoenix.”
All proceeds from Roosevelt Row’s annual fundraising event will support A.R.T.S (Adaptive Reuse of Temporary Space), Valley of the Sunflowers, and volunteer community art projects.
All are invited to attend Turning Brown Lots Green Monday, Monday, May 21st from 5:30pm-8:30pm at Bliss/Rebar – 901 N. 4th St., Phoenix, AZ 85004. Tickets are $30 in advance and include appetizers and two drinks.
