2020 Annual Business Sponsor Campaign
Your business can become an Annual Business Sponsor with a tax-deductible donation.  There are many great benefits to partnering with your local community art center – recognition in our gallery (10,000+ visitors annually), in social media, our newsletter and a listing on our website; a fun and super-creative tee with our 2020 sponsors listed on the back; a door sticker proclaiming your support of local art; discounts on classes and in our shop for the donor’s family … and more.

You can learn more about MWCA, our 2020 Business Sponsor campaign and the benefits provided to your business  HERE

The campaign ends March 31 – we don’t want you to miss out on this great opportunity!

If you’d like to meet to discuss how your business can partner with us on specific projects, contact Hope Reese (director) at 770-207-8937 or email hope@monroeartguild.org.

Saturday Soiree: March 14
Drop In for our usual once-a-month food and fun events!!
No RSVP needed – just drop in!
We’ll start serving lunch at noon

MANY THANKS, once again, to Animal Care Hospital at Bold Springs for sponsoring our Soirees.  They help pay for the food and supplies so that the funds raised from our lunch sales are 100% profit for us. Our volunteers and board members also donate most if not all of their food items, as well.  Any great cooks are welcome to help us out! Thank you all.
