PosterGarden celebrates its nonprofit art, culture, parks and gardens partners at second annual appreciation event

Portland, Ore.  (Jan. 30, 2013) — At a festive and cordial reception inside its Pearl District showroom Jan. 24, PosterGarden celebrated the many partnerships it’s made with a host of nonprofit art and culture organizations, parks and gardens. The event gave PosterGarden the opportunity to express its continued support for its partners, while also bringing together the local organizations to help further the sense of community among them.

“The evening was a great time to share common experiences and to create stronger connections,” said Steve Kelly, workplace giving coordinator for Work for Art, a program of the Regional Arts & Culture Council that raises funds to support arts and culture organizations. “It was inspiring to see just how many great organizations PosterGarden has chosen to assist.”

Through its PosterGarden Fund for Arts, Culture & Gardens, PosterGarden helps community organizations through funding, donations, volunteerism and entrepreneurial ideas. Among the more than 75 people at the event representing close to 25 organizations were: Walter Jaffe, co-founder of White Bird Dance; Deborah Hopkinson, vice president for advancement for Pacific Northwest College of Arts; Nick Hardigg, executive director of the Portland Parks Foundation; Nancy Ellis, executive director of Wordstock; Marta Bones, executive director for Pittock Mansion; and Suzanne Kenney, executive director for Pendulum Aerial Arts.

“We want to express our deepest gratitude to PosterGarden for the support they have extended over the past year,” said Amy Henderson, executive director of The Geezer Gallery, a Pearl District gallery and creative program that showcases the work of artists over age 60. “This event allowed everyone to learn about the various organizations PosterGarden supports and provided a platform for creative collaborations and partnerships to further our missions.”

Honored by the Portland Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthropy Awards program last fall, PosterGarden has made philanthropy an important part of its business and its involvement in the community. The Jan. 24 event gave the company a chance to celebrate with all of its partners and continue to share its support.

“These are the kind of relationships and the kind of community that we want to foster here in Portland,” said Wendy Mitchell, program director for the PosterGarden Fund for Arts, Culture & Gardens. “To us, it’s important to support arts, culture, the parks, the gardens – everything that makes Portland such a great place. And we host this event to gather our partners and let them know that, together, we can really make a big difference.”
