"After Hours" event at Urban Eats Cafe
to benefit The Sheldon's educational programs

The Urban Eats Café, 3301 Meramec Street in St. Louis' Dutchtown neighborhood, will raise money for the art and music educational programs of the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries by hosting the Downtown Dutchtown Business Association’s "After Hours" event on Wednesday, June 17.

The event will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in conjunction with Urban Eats' First Anniversary Celebration Street Party. The café will offer "free appetizers, drink specials, attendance prizes, live music by Dizzy Atmosphere and other musicians, and more." The entire menu will be available, including paninis, flatbread pizzas, wraps, smoothies, beer, and wine, with a portion of the food and drink proceeds benefiting Sheldon art and music educational programs.

In addition, this event also kicks off an ongoing "Giveback Partnership Program." During the coming year, Urban Eats Café will donate to the Sheldon the equivalent of 5% of the amount of purchases made by anyone who designates “The Sheldon” on their receipt at the café.

The Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries present educational programs to more than 20,000 young people each year. For more information, call the Sheldon's education coordinator at 314-533-9900.
