Dayton, OH – The Downtown Dayton Revival Music Festival announces today that a portion of the concert proceeds will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters and Stivers School for the Arts. These two organizations directly serve over 1,500 children a year in the Dayton region and both will benefit from all moneys spent on tickets, beverages, merchandise and other goods.
“Our mission with the Downtown Dayton Revival is to use the power of music to bring people together in a way that improves our community,” said Matt Luongo, President, Downtown Revival, LLC. “There is no better way to stay true to this mission than to donate a portion of our proceeds to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Miami Valley and to the Stivers School for the Arts.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children realize their potential and build their futures. They nurture children and strengthen communities and have been doing so for over 100 years. “This event will be a super time for everyone there rocking in person. And because of the great festival organizers, it will be a continuing gift to the Dayton Region as it benefits young people in need throughout our entire Dayton area. Hats off to how the Festival is building our entire community,” said Joe Radelet, President, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Greater Miami Valley.
Stivers School for the Arts, also celebrating over 100 years, proves that participation in the Arts enhances academic performance. “This support from the Downtown Dayton Revival will help not only student musicians at Stivers School for the Arts but also younger students from Dayton elementary schools who study at our Dayton String Academy. I am certain that the young Dayton students who are helped by the concert will someday be on stage at a Downtown Dayton Revival concert” said Bill Pflaum, President of the Seedling Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports arts education at Stivers School for the Arts.
