Mayor's Ball raises $120,000 for three nonprofits

The 2014 Creative Planning Inc. Beaverton Mayor’s Ball, presented by Arthur Murray Dance Studio in downtown Beaverton, grossed more than $120,000 to benefit the Beaverton Arts and Culture Foundation, Beaverton Historical Society and Beaverton Civic Theatre.

More than 300 guests attended this year's sold-out event, which was held at the Tiger Wood Center on the Nike World Headquarters campus at Southwest Jenkins Road and Murray Boulevard. The event serves as a fundraiser for arts and culture organizations as well as a chance for the community to celebrate Beaverton.

“We’re so grateful for the outpouring of support the event received this year,” said Mayor Denny Doyle. “Thanks to the generosity of many community members and partners, three wonderful nonprofits can continue their good work.”

Here is a rundown of the beneficiary organizations:

• Beaverton Arts and Culture Foundation — Supporting art education for elementary school children in third through fifth grades in collaboration with the Beaverton School District and Young Audiences of Oregon and Southwest Washington. The foundation also provides artistic scholarships to graduating high school seniors.

• Beaverton Historical Society — Provides education to the community about cultural heritage through the preservation, interpretation and celebration of the city’s historic past. The Beaverton Historical Society is located on Southwest Broadway Street.

• Beaverton Civic Theatre — Makes theater accessible to all. The all-volunteer theater company strives to reflect the diverse lives of the community on stage.
