Creative Portland is holding their first ever fundraiser Friday night.

The non-profit organization's goal is to foster and grow a strong artistic community in Maine's largest city. More specifically, their "big hairy audacious goal" is to bring 10,000 creative people to Portland in the next ten years. They're not looking for just artists, but people who will support the arts, too.

Creative Portland's most visual project is probably the First Friday Art Walk. They also help find money and jobs for people considering the move to Portland.
