Since 2007 the Des Moines Social Club has provided thought-provoking theater, classes for people of all ages, promotion for local artists, and a recruiting tool for the many businesses in Downtown Des Moines. 2012 is going to be no different in the unique and exciting programs we will offer to the community. Our events reach over 100,000 people in the Greater Des Moines area through attendance and marketing and we hope you will choose to be a part of it. We look forward to working with you this year and invite you to be a part of the dynamic programming DMSC has to offer. -Zachary Mannheimer, Executive Director
