A Novel Way to Gain More Exposure for Your Business
We’ve all seen minor league sports teams from hockey and football, to baseball and soccer, proudly donning their team jerseys. The donations of these jerseys go a long waytowards offsetting the cost for these youngsters to play in organized leagues and make them feel part of a team with a shared goal.
The sponsor whose name is emblazoned on these uniforms has the satisfaction of helping a worthy cause as well as seeing her business being viewed in a positive light by many parents and spectators as supporting healthy, life- affirming, activities in our community
However there is a segment of kids in our community and others, whose participation in certain activities seems neglected by the business community. Many view these activities as important as sports in the development of healthy, well rounded, kids; many would argue that they offer much more in terms of building character and giving kids the tools which will serve them well in the future. These neglected activities are the arts: drama, dance, music, writing and art- any artistic endeavour where kids get to be free to use their innate imaginations to create and perform either for themselves or for an audience. The arts have shown to bring so many positive benefits to anyone lucky enough to experience them.
You might ask what would our world be like without sports for we have all had our own wonderful experiences as either participants or spectators to know that it would not be good one. But what would a world without art be like? We have all been affected by some form of art in our lives. From a great book to a beautiful painting or a poignant play, to a piece of music or a song which moves us to our core- the arts affect us in so many ways; lucky the child who gets to experience the joy which involvement in the arts brings. Just as our sports community need your support to function so does the usually neglected arts community.
Here is your chance to get involved in something new, something novel: sponsoring the arts. In this case sponsoring a time honoured local arts institution: Triple Threat Theatre.
