This year’s Soaring Eagle Arts, Beats and Eats festival attracted one of its largest crowds and raised the most money for charitable groups since the festival began, organizers said Thursday.

Donations of $398,133 were generated through the festival.

Among the funds raised, $82,500 from gate proceeds was donated to a dozen organizations such as Forgotten Harvest, HAVEN, Lighthouse of Oakland County, Stagecrafters, The Rainbow Connection, Metro Detroit Youth Clubs, The Ted Lindsay Foundation HOPE Center, and Volunteers of America.
