To the editor:
I am writing this to invite the residents and businesses of Fort Myers Beach to help sponsor the third annual "Paint the Beach .. A Plein Air Festival" on Nov. 5-11. Presenting sponsors are Fort Myers Beach Art Association, Santini Marina Plaza and Fish-Tale Marina. We have had successful events in the previous two years and this year is going to be even better.
Artists from all over the nation and other countries are invited to gather here and paint en plein air from San Carlos Island to Lover's Key, celebrating the beauty of our community.
Local attractions and businesses were subjects that were painted and then displayed under the tent in Santini Marina Plaza, starting with a festive gala and preview Friday night. It is a wonderful community event with great art, food, music and people!
There are many different levels and areas that you can sponsor, starting with sponsoring an artist to stay with you, in kind donations, to financial sponsorship to also advertise your business.
For information about how you and or your business can join in the event, please contact me at 207-2982 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about our non-profit organzation, go to fortmyersbeachart.com.
