The Rex Foundation presented the first Black Tie-Dye Ball in Chicago in March 2004 with Dark Star Orchestra. Since then, there have been Black Tie-Dye Balls in New York City, Washington, D.C., Denver, Colorado, Los Angeles and San Francisco. These festive occasions provide the opportunity to collaborate with gifted performers that care about the Rex Foundation. On September 25th, as at each Ball, enjoy a unique musical experience, while also celebrating the Portland area”s talent, enterprise and community spirit. Proceeds help support local area non-profit programs.

The September 25th Black Tie-Dye Ball also helps celebrate the 3rd month-long DSO Rex Caravan Tour, where every show along the way includes $1 per ticket as a contribution to the Rex Foundation. We thank Dark Star Orchestra for their steadfast and generous support. Together, with all DSO fans, we demonstrate the power of the musical community to provide essential seed grants to smaller non-profits doing great work in many different ways.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you on September 25th.
