“Art in the Garden” Sponsorship Opportunities

[1]Citizens First and Berthoud Arts and Humanities Alliance (BAHA) are holding the first annual Berthoud Art in the Garden on Saturday, June 26, 2010 from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. The event will be held in the beautiful garden of the historic Waggener home in Berthoud.

This is your opportunity to help the Arts in Berthoud. There are multiple inexpensive sponsorship options available to give you a chance to be a part of this exciting new community event. Please see the attached Sponsorship sheet for details – be a friend of Art in the Garden for only $25.00.

Art in the Garden is attracting painters, sculptors and photographers from around the area to display and sell their work in the gorgeous park-like setting of the Waggener garden. The event will feature local and regional artists, wine tasting, live music and a children’s art project sponsored by the Wildfire Community Arts Center [2].  This event is a fundraiser to support BAHA and Citizens First. Ten percent of artists’ sales will go to BAHA while the admission of $5.00 per adult will go to Citizens First to support various civic activities including public information forums and grants to local charities. Your sponsorship will help promote the event with flyers, posters, mailings and more.

With any level of sponsorship, you will receive free entrance to the Garden on the day of the event, and you will be recognized on print materials as well as on the website, www.BerthoudArtInTheGarden.com [3] and on Facebook [4]:  (Become a friend on Facebook for daily updates & links to featured artists!)
