26th Annual Santa Monica Pier Twilight Dance Series Line Up – Starts July 8th!

The Santa Monica Pier has received the green light to roll-out the Twilight Dance Series with new sponsors added to the mix.  Bloomingdale’s Santa Monica, set to open at Santa Monica Place on Friday, August 6 has generously partnered with the Series as one of the newest members of the neighborhood and community.

“Bloomingdale’s prides itself in supporting organizations and causes that are important to the people and communities where we have our stores,” said Anne Keating, Senior Vice President Public Relations, Special Events and Corporate Philanthropy.  “This opportunity to be a part of Santa Monica’s annual summer season with the Twilight Dance Series in our new neighborhood is a perfect fit.”

Executive Director of the Pier Restoration Corporation (PRC) said, “It is now official, Thursday nights this summer have been saved!  Thanks to the incredible support of the community and our sponsors including Bloomingdale’s, we will have a full summer of great music on the Pier.”

Bloomingdale’s first concert sponsorship featuring Rickie Lee Jones is scheduled for Thursday, August 5, a prelude to the Santa Monica store Grand Opening on August 6.

“To have a company with the national reputation of Bloomingdale’s recognize the value of the Twilight Dance Series and show their commitment to the Santa Monica Community is fantastic,” said Kent Smith, Chair of the Pier Restoration Corporation, “We are looking forward to a fantastic summer and ongoing partnership with such an elite company as Bloomingdale’s as well as other generous sponsors including The City of Santa Monica, Australian Consulate, Bayside District Corporation and Pacific Park–just to mention a few.
