The United Way of Tampa Bay will present the Art of Giving: Caring with Style at the A La Carte Pavilion on April 12 beginning at 5 pm. Tickets are $125 and all of the proceeds will go to support the United Way’s Summer Care program.

The evening will start with “a walk down the red carpet, then off to get Hollywood style hair and make-up touch ups.” The keynote speaker for this event will be America Ferrara, star of Ugly Betty. She will be giving a 40 minute talk about the importance of education and will be sharing stories about her acting career. The talk will include a question and answer session and she will also signing autographs at the end of the night. In addition to the speech, there will be a silent auction for items such as travel packages, a live handbag auction entitled “Power of the Purse” and a gourmet dinner.

Table sponsorships are available to interested companies. Sponsorships cost $1500 and include your company name being displayed on large screens at the event, your company name in the event program and a reserved table for 10 with your company logo as the centerpiece. Tampa printing companies will no doubt be providing the event program.

The United Way’s Summer Care program provides free summer child daycare and

“financial education for working families.”

It is often hard for working parents to find competent daycare for their children and this program takes the worry away.
