About four a cause

December 7, 2017 | 4:00PM-9:00PM

Four A Cause is a free annual holiday event and social presented by Benchmark Residential & Investment Real Estate.

This is not just any holiday party. Each year, we choose 4 local charities to highlight during the evening's festivities and ask that attendees consider making a donation to be split among them. This year, we asked our Facebook fans to choose our local charities. Here they are!

Special Olympics of Maine, Portland Youth Dance, Wayfinder Schools, and The Locker Project will be joining us on December 7th at Aura.

Ticket Information

Ticketmaster + Box Office

Four A Cause is free and open to the public, but we do ask attendees consider making a donation to be split evenly among our four chosen charities. We encourage you to make your donation online by purchasing a ticket to our event (see link below). A $20 donation gets you two drink tickets, and a $10 donation gets you 1 drink ticket. All proceeds go directly to our charities!

Donating in advance online also gives you an automatic entry into our raffle and allows you to use the "express" line into the event. Make your donation using the Ticketmaster link above or by calling the Aura Box Office at 1-800-745-3000. Don't want to commit? Make a donation in any amount at the door in cash or bring a check to the charity of your choice.

NOTE: There is no difference between the general admission vs. balcony tickets. Everyone has access to the entire event.
