Concert Donations Needed!

The Eliot Neighborhood Concert Committee has been hard at work gathering sponsors and creating a fantastic lineup of music for our annual Dawson Park Concert Series and movie night. We are in need of some help however. A couple of our larger sponsors from past years are unable to give this year, so we are still in need of donations and sponsorship.

The good news is Portland Parks now has an easy way for folks to make individual online donations to the concerts. As a bonus through April, all individual donations (up to $1,000) to Dawson Park Concerts will be matched by the Kristan Knapp Fund – effectively doubling your donation!  If you’d like to make a contribution, please click the link below and select “Dawson Park (Eliot)” to give.

We are still accepting sponsorships for those businesses who would like to participate. This is a great way to help support the neighborhood and promote your business for as little as $250. If you’d like more information on how to become a sponsor, please contact me at

The concert committee would like to thank those local businesses who have already committed to sponsor the series:

We couldn’t do this without your generosity!
