On June 26, Peak Arts Fund presented a building-wide fundraising luncheon with 4 companies who share 6 N. Tejon Street in downtown Colorado Springs. Participating companies included Braxton Technologies, The Paramount Group, TechWise, Vladimir Jones and YoungWilliams Child Support Services. The companies combined their collective “giving power” to qualify for more Peak Radar Passes through the “Double Your Investment” option of ourWorkplace Giving program. Several of the companies also matched employee gifts, so their employees could be more easily eligible for a Peak Radar Pass. It was especially inspiring to hear executives from each company speak publicly about the value of the arts in our community. These are clearly local business leaders who understand the wide-ranging impact of the arts on economic development, workforce retention, recruitment of new businesses and innovative employees to Colorado Springs, and vibrant quality of life for residents and visitors.
Employees stopped down during lunch to enjoy pizza, cookies, lemonade and live Art Breaks performed by Ormao Dance Company and jazz guitarist David Musante from Colorado Springs Conservatory, 2 of the 18 local arts nonprofits that benefit from every dollar give to Peak Arts Fund. It was a fun opportunity for building tenants to get to know one another and rally around a common cause.
Our thanks to Braxton Technologies, The Paramount Group, TechWise, Vladimir Jones and YoungWilliams for your leadership. Your contributions to the arts in the Pikes Peak region will make a big difference. Special thanks to Bev O’Neil, Julie Brooks, Amy Triandiflou, Jeff Ball, Meredith Vaughan, Shawnee Huckstep, Becky Mitchell, and Kevin O’Neil for your support of this inspiring event.
