The Village Bank is Platinum Sponsor for Newton’s Festival of the Arts 2016

Again this year, The Village Bank is the major sponsor of Newton’s Festival of the Arts, a city-wide showcase of music, art, film, theatre and performances by local nonprofit cultural and arts organizations and talented residents.

The Bank’s $20,000 donation to the Festival as the event’s Platinum Sponsor supports the joint efforts of the Mayor’s Office for Cultural Affairs and Newton Community Pride to celebrate the wealth of talent that helps define the local community.

“We are so grateful to The Village Bank for supporting the Festival of the Arts again this year,” said Newton Mayor Setti Warren. “It is great to see such support for our artistic and cultural community and to be able to partner with them to provide access to the many exciting events we have in store this year for residents of all backgrounds.”

“It’s no secret that Newton is home to an impressive collection of outstanding cultural and arts organizations and gifted individuals, all of whom enhance our city and enrich our lives,” said Joseph De Vito, president and CEO of The Village Bank. “We are pleased to play a role in highlighting their work for everyone’s enjoyment during the Festival of the Arts.”

Net proceeds from the Festival will benefit Newton’s four food pantries and the smaller nonprofit arts and cultural organizations in the city. The Festival schedule of events is available at NewtonCommunityPride.org.
