Corporate sponsors and individual donors make a difference each year in the arts education programs offered in schools in the Cleveland and Bradley County community through a special fundraiser.
The annual Chair-ries Jubilee fundraiser, themed “3D: Designate, Decorate, Donate” for 2013, will raise money for arts in education and other arts programs throughout the community on April 12, at the Museum Center at Five Points.
Chair-ries Jubilee is a project of the Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce and is but one way the council serves as an arts education advocate and a means for promoting local artists.
“Each year we invite the support of corporate sponsors and individuals who want to assist in bringing arts-related programs to area schools and promoting arts education,” said Catherine Boettner, sponsorship co-chair. “Sponsorships have allowed us to showcase the artwork of a variety of talented artists throughout our community while raising more than $300,000 since the first Chair-ries Jubilee 15 years ago.”
Boettner continued, “We deeply appreciate the generous sponsorship support we have received this year. We encourage you to thank them for their interest in the arts and to support them with your patronage.”
