Uptown Marion is hosting the sixth annual Eat. Drink. & Be Marion: Food & Pub Crawl Fundraiser with a twist. Our mission is to improve Uptown Marion through continued revitalization, growth and preservation of historic character through appropriate design, promotion, and economic strategies that improve our community. A big part of what we do is serve the small businesses in the heart of our community that are owned by our friends and neighbors and woven into the fabric of Marion. These businesses need our support as an organization now more than ever and the proceeds of this event do just that. Main Streets are a proven economic driver for communities and play a vital role in restarting our economies. Together well will emerge better and stronger but we need your help.
With the health and safety of our event attendees, volunteers, and businesses top priority, along with the guidance of health officials and local restrictions we will be changing the format for 2020. We are launching 2020 Eat. Drink. & Be Marion AT HOME, on July 16 as an opportunity to safely support the Uptown organization. We know this event will look much different from the past but we are working hard to make it a fun and successful fundraising event.
Attendees will be able to select donor levels from the website and receive an at-home (or with a small group of friends) pub crawl kit that will include the year’s logo’d drinkware and other swag.
Attendees will be encouraged to shop local eat and drink establishments in preparation for the event where there will be online entertainment options, prizes, and the annual experiences auction on the night of the event.
The annual Logo’d drinkware will be utilized for Uptown promotion nights in the district businesses, dates yet to be determined based off health and safety protocols.
