Artists for Darden Rice City Council 4 Fundraiser Friends of Guests

Fundraiser for progressive candidate Darden Rice for District 4 of the St. Petersburg City Council.

When: Oct. 3

6:00pm until 8:00pm

Where: 550 24th Street South, St. Petersburg, FL 33712

Rice is pushing for the city of St. Petersburg to give more grants to the arts.

The city should increase its grants to local arts non-profits from $175,000 a year to at least $300,000, said Rice, adding that she hopes to eventually bring it up to $400,000 or higher as the economy improves. By comparison, Sarasota distributes $1 million in grants to its arts organizations, she said.

You can also donate to Rice online.
