Palm Harbor, FL (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Earlier this month, the Greater Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce held the 38th Annual Fine Arts and Crafts Harbor Art Festival, located in historic downtown Palm Harbor, FL. Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. (NTC), a staunch Chamber supporter and leading service provider for the residential mortgage, sponsored the festival in addition to helping the Chamber attract over 2,000 people to the two-day event.
Nearly 100 artists competed for $6,250 in cash awards. A popular first this year was the “Battle of the Best Wings in Pinellas County.” In addition to art, guests enjoyed food from local downtown restaurants, street food vendors, live music and children’s activities.
The festival was founded by Louise and Bill Hoskins. A visual arts scholarship was awarded to a local high-school student in their honor, with a portion of the proceeds from the festival being contributed toward the scholarship.
Along with a donation from Apex Office Supply, NTC employees and other volunteers provided art materials for children who attended the festival. They were able to create over 400 holiday crafts with the kids.
With over 300 local employees, NTC has reinforced its community involvement by a more active role in their local Chamber. NTC Community Relations Director, Janice Rush, served as Publicity Chair for the event. “The children’s art tent was manned by 50 volunteers over the two-day event, 11 of which came from NTC’s employee base,” commented Rush.
A voluntary organization of business and professional men and women, the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce acts as a spokesman for the business and professional community, providing a variety of services for members and the community. NTC officials says that participation in organizations like the Chambers are valuable way for businesses to have positive a impact on the communities in which their employees serve.
