Rick Taylor Real Estate, New Presenting Sponsor

Chelsea Area Festivals and Events (CAFE) is pleased to announce Rick Taylor Real Estate as the new presenting sponsor for the 2018 Sounds and Sights summer concert series.

Now in its 14th season, Sounds and Sights on Thursday Nights kicks off on June 7 and runs every Thursday night through Aug. 16. These open-air concerts are known for their variety of music, dance, comedy, film, and family entertainment.

In addition to the 11-week schedule, a three-day Sounds and Sights Festival will take place July 26-28.

The festival, now in its 42nd year, helps raise funds necessary to support the free Sounds and Sight Thursday Nights’ concert series.

“As with all nonprofit events, fundraising is an essential part of Sounds and Sights,” said CAFE sponsorship coordinator Maureen Perdomo.

“Rick has continued to be a generous sponsor over the years, and we are excited he stepped up to the level of presenting sponsor this year,” she said.

“Sounds and Sights on Thursday Nights is one of my family’s favorite things to do in the summer.  I feel lucky to be a part of Sounds and Sights and can’t wait for this summer,” said Reinhart realtor, Rick Taylor.

In their annual sponsorship drive, CAFE reaches out to community partners to help keep events free to the public. “These events would not be possible without the support of so many in the community and the financial investment of over 100 sponsors,” said Perdomo.

There are several sponsor levels still available for business, individuals, and families. Sponsorship packets are available online at www.chelseafestivals.com/sponsors, or by calling Perdomo at 734-223-2138.

Sponsorships must be received by April 1 to be included in marketing material.

Chelsea Area Festivals and Events is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and all sponsorships/donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. All proceeds will go to support Sounds and Sights on Thursday Nights in downtown Chelsea.
