Entertainment District

DVC anniversary event moved to fall 2014

event postponed DVC

Dear friends and supporters of Downtown Voices Coalition:

DVC had issues with trying to secure a date with our most interested venue for our 10th Anniversary Celebration and as the dates continued to conflict, our Steering Committee decided to postpone until Fall 2014.

Expect news over the summer as we get our event better planned and decide on the perfect place and date. Thanks for signing up, and we’ll keep you informed via the usual email list for more information. Our May meeting is still cancelled but we will have our next General Meeting Saturday, June 14.

Finally, please continue to send your pictures of DVC events and activities over the past decade to dvc10@downtownvoices.org! These can include any pictures you have from DVC events or DVC’s participation at other events; downtown buildings that have been saved, rehabilitated, or lost; and the things you love or don’t love about downtown Phoenix.

Thanks for all you do for downtown Phoenix,

Eddie
