Work for Art, the United Arts Fund campaign of Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC), is hosting its first ever corporate battle of the bands. A celebration of employee creativity, the event will feature employee bands from some of Work for Art’s partner companies who will perform for family, friends, and co-workers.

Companies–including Kaiser Permanente, KeyBank, Portland General Electric, The Standard, and Tonkon Torp–will be represented by employee bands with 3-10 members. A panel of celebrity judges will award several prizes including Best Company Band, and audience members will vote for an Audience Favorite.

The event will take place on May 12 at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR, and all proceeds will benefit Work for Art and its 10th Anniversary Campaign to raise $1 million for local arts and culture organization in the Portland area.
