Patrons of the Centre is a membership organization formed in support of The Centre for Performing and Visual Arts in Coweta County. The mission of the Patrons of the Centre is to sustain the vision of artistic excellence for our community. The generosity of the Centre Patrons directly supports events sponsored by the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts by broadening the community and student opportunities in partnership with the Coweta County Board of Education.
The members of the newly formed group recognize the importance of the Arts in our community and are willing to share their time, talents and resources to ensure that our community’s commitment to the arts continues to grow and prosper. The Coweta Community Foundation, a non-profit corporation, serves as the fiscal agent of the Patrons organization.
Membership is currently being sought for the 2008 calendar year. “The Centre for Performing and Visual Arts is a tremendous asset for our community. We are seeking supportive members whose patronage will enable the Centre to offer more cultural enhancements and opportunities for the public to enjoy,” according to Dr. Mary Ben Christensen, Membership Chairperson for Patrons of the Centre.
Membership Levels are available beginning at $45.00 as a “Friend of the Centre.” Patrons joining as “Stars of the Centre” ($250 dual membership) and above will receive an invitation to a Venetian Masquerade Gala Ball, an event celebrating the newly formed Patrons group. The Black Tie event will be held March 8, 2008 at Riverwood Studios in Senoia.
