Inner-City Arts celebrates its 20th birthday this year, and next Saturday the non-profit will celebrate by hosting a fundraising party at its Downtown campus. "Summer on 7th" takes place on July 25, offering a variety of musical acts and hand-crafted art and jewelry.

Founded in 1989, Inner-City Arts provides arts education to underserved youth. Last October it opened an expanded facility designed by local architect Michael Maltzan, continuing to serve students from 7th and Kohler.

The organization sent this information out to donors:

Inner-City Arts turns 20 this year. Come celebrate with us at a big birthday bash on July 25th - Summer on 7th!

From 7 p.m. to midnight, this hip, "place-to-be" party includes salsa dancers with live music by one of L.A.'s premier salsa bands, Son y Clave. We will also have internationally renowned hip hop troupe, the Versa-Style Dance Company, and DJ Esco spinning tunes that will make you want to groove. Our Artists' Alley will be selling hand-crafted art and jewelry. (This is a 21-and-over only event.)

Our birthday wish is simple: that you join us that night and make it a huge success. Inner-City Arts exists first and foremost for the under-served children of our beautiful city; who could deny the kids a birthday present like this?

Bring your friends, families, co-workers and neighbors and come party with Inner-City Arts. For only $40 per person (or 6 tickets for the special price of $200) you'll enjoy an evening of summer fun for a great cause. This tremendous milestone is a perfect opportunity for more people to learn about our mission and our work.

Our birthday wish is simple: Come party with Inner-City Arts!
