ABC Awards coming up in Philadelphia

April 24, 2013 by  

The 28th annual Arts and Business Council (ABC) Awards will be taking place in Philadelphia early in May.

The awards are aimed at honoring those who volunteer their time to the arts and culture community. There are 10 awards up for grabs, including the Anne d’Harnoncourt Award for Artistic Excellence, the Business and Arts Partnership Award, the Business Volunteer for the Arts Volunteer of the Year, and the Technology Connectors Volunteer of the Year.

The evening will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, networking and, of course, the awards ceremony. It will be a great opportunity for those involved in the arts to connect with others who are in the same industry, so it might be worth getting those business card printing orders in ahead of time.

Non-profit organizations will also have the chance to rent a booth for $500, which will allow them to highlight the services that they provide for the community and also to help get more people to volunteer with them. No doubt many of them will come from all around the Philadelphia area, including nearby Media, and they may want to work with local printing companies to design and print literature in the form of flyers or brochures.

The Arts and Business Council Awards will take place at Vie on May 8 from 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm. Tickets are $150, $125 for ABC volunteers, and $100 for non-profit organizations. Sponsorships are also available from $2,000 to $4,000 for local businesses who would like to help out.
