How does the sponsorship party work?
WHAT IS IT?
The Artcraft Sponsorship party is our largest fundraiser - held to announce the 2017-18 film and event series at the theater. The funds raised - via digital bidding - are used to offset costs such as film licensing, production costs, equipment rental, talent fees and more.
Admission to this
21-and-over event is $10.
Bidding for this year's Artcraft Sponsorship party will be done by digital bidding. Use your own phone / tablet, or bid from one of our provided digital stations.
A link will be provided upon check-in that will go live once the bidding begins.
Throughout the night, we will be offering various items and projects to bid on and contribute to.
This year's event is
21-and-over event and admission is $10.
Register your group online, or by calling (317) 736-6823.
Admission is $10. Don’t forget to charge your smart phone or tablet as we’ll be bidding digitally this year! Also, grab your flip flops and beach gear - it’s an island party, so dress accordingly!
Come to The Historic Artcraft Theatre (57 N. Main St., Franklin) on Saturday, February 4, at 6 p.m. When you arrive, you will be greeted inside the door, checked in, given your name tag and a breakdown of the night. You’re in!
Very easy - since you reserved a spot.
Relax and enjoy complimentary beer, wine, Coke products, popcorn and great food from local restaurants. Food and drinks are in the lobby, and theater auditorium. The green room bungalow will be open for photos and a quieter place to gather. (through the left chute, up the three steps, turn left).
At 7:30 p.m., we unveil the 2017-18 series in the auditorium.
Grab a seat and cheer loudly for your favorites.
At 8 p.m., we invite you to start bidding. Bidding will be done digitally - via smart phone / tablets.
A link will be provided when you check in.
Bidding starts as low as $25 (prize sponsorship level) and there are six different levels for each movie. Plus, live events, and some donations will be taken from the stage for various projects at The Artcraft. Volunteers will be available to answer questions and assist with bidding. We will have dedicated bidding locations for those without smart phone or tablet accessibility.
The bidding stops promptly at 9:30 p.m.
We ask that you grab another drink or snack, and have a seat in the auditorium. The bids will be compiled (this process takes a few minutes) and winners will be announced on stage.
When the party ends, we will have volunteers set up in the lobby for checkout. Payment is appreciated the night of the event. Cash, check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover are accepted.
