If you're fan of Downtown murals, First Friday, Third Friday, the A.R.T.S. Initiative, or the Downtown culture scene in general, then it's probably time to tip your hat and toss a chunk of change to Roosevelt Row on Thursday, March 28.
The organization will host its annual fundraising party at Cibo from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., when you can chat up a few gallery owners, talk to local artists and urban gardeners, and hang out on the killer patio before it gets too hot.

Funds raised from ticket sales ($35 online, $100 for a VIP ticket) will help Roosevelt Row's A.R.T.S. initiative, which temporarily activates empty downtown lots with arts markets, fairs, film spaces, and community gardens. Cash raised at the party will also go toward the Growhouse Community Garden, where volunteers grow and sell local produce. Each ticket includes two drinks and complementary appetizers.
During the party, the organization will also be auctioning off art pieces, gift baskets and certificates, and goods and services from local businesses.
Cibo is at 603 North Fifth Avenue. For more information, see the event invite.
