On Wednesday February 26, 2014 representatives of Scotiabank St.Thomas, Maria Santos
(Branch Manager) and Jason Dykes (Financial Advisor) graciously presented Port Stanley
Festival Theatre with a cheque for $5,000 as Corporate Sponsors of the upcoming
"The generosity of our community is what keeps the theatre running season to season.
Whether it be the patrons who watch each summer performance, the members who join
us for our annual meetings or the sponsorships we receive from local businesses
such as Scotiabank," says Theatre Manager Melissa Kempf.
Kempf is delighted to have Scotiabank St.Thomas as first time Corporate Sponsors
for the 2014 Season. Sponsorship is a vital part of the operational funding of the
theatre being that they are a not-for-profit tourist attraction. "For residents
of Port Stanley, our community reaches far beyond the streets of Colborne, Union
and Fairview. Thus it was only natural to provide the opportunity of sponsorship
to business in St.Thomas and London as well," explains Kempf.
Along with funding from the Ontario Arts Council, joining the theatre's sponsorship
program this summer are Elgin County Tourism as Season Sponsor; the Windjammer Inn,
Kettle Creek Inn, Studio Style, Wendy's of St.Thomas, Russell House Ladies Apparel
as Show Sponsors; GT's Bar and Grill as Membership Sponsor; Broderick's Ice Cream
Parlour, Impressions Printing, McBain Signs, Orchestra London, The Roxy Diner, Helen
and Richard Haddow of Re/MAX and The London Yodeller as PSFT Community Partners;
Port Stanley Legion as Youth Sponsor; and The London Free Press, Port Stanley News.com
and Coffee News as Media Sponsors.
Anyone interested in purchasing tickets for the upcoming season may find more information
at the theatre's website
www.portstanleytheatre.ca or by calling the box office at 519-782-4353.
The Board of Directors and staff of Port Stanley Festival Theatre would like to
welcome Scotiabank of St.Thomas and extend their many thanks to all their 2014 Sponsors
for playing a part in our community.
