Raise a glass for a great cause by sponsoring Wine Weekend St. Pete 2013!
From a corporate standpoint, most know the obvious benefits of event sponsorship. These include everything from boosting community relations, increasing brand loyalty, creating company or product awareness and visibility and entertaining clients. However, an event like Wine Weekend St. Pete offers so many additional benefits that will have a direct impact on one of the regions’ top artistic and cultural destinations by benefiting the Museum of Fine Art, St Petersburg’s outreach programs to children.
It’s commonly overlooked what impact the arts have on our youth, especially in this economic climate. The Margaret Acheson Stuart Society holds this event to ensure the children of our community have access to these vital resources to help mold their futures.
Here are a few fun facts that maybe you didn’t know about the impact of arts on kids:
Kids who are involved in art are…
- 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement
- 3 times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools
- 4 times more likely to participate in a math and science fair
- 3 times more likely to win an award for school attendance
And this is just the beginning of how art impacts children, even reaching into their teen years, including higher college entrance exam scores. So we encourage you to consider sponsoring this amazing event which promises to not only be a completely over the top weekend centered on great food, great wines and a stellar auction — but have a lasting impact on the community for years to come!
