Who can be a sponsor for Glass Artists in Action 2015…You CAN!

Here’s the scoop so far about this years’ event, Glass Artists in Action 2015.
Visit Hendricks County/HCCVB has been immensely supportive and they are again this year extensively promoting this event for me and are also creating a rack card, writing blog posts/Facebook features/Tweets and such to get the word out. We both, HBG and VHC have been working hard to let our surrounding communities in our county know that we have a viable art glass business established here. With a well-documented number of glass artists, students, sampler participants, renters, and glass collectors and aficionados coming through my studio, we want to high-light the nature of hot glass and how it helps my county in so many ways.
Please consider being a financial sponsor for this annual event this year. Your sponsorship would be beyond appreciated, if that is possible, and will help make this event even better this year.
In the past year or two, I have asked a couple local businesses that I am affiliated with  to come on board, and have been pleasantly surprise by their support. But up until now, I had not asked but several folks,  in my local glass art community or glass-based organizations for their support.
If you would, please consider being a sponsor for Glass Artists in Action 2015. You know that I am not so formal that I have set up dollar amount categories, as any financial support will be greatly appreciated. Businesses and individuals who have sponsored this event have had their names/logos added into promotional material if they so desire.
