Dayton – November 2007 – Time Warner Cable has pledged nearly $150,000 in free advertising to promote Culture Works and its member organizations over the next 12 months.
Time Warner Cable Southwest Ohio Division and Culture Works will work together to raise awareness for the Culture Works annual giving campaign, local arts groups’ performances and the Art Card, a flexible gift card accepted by performing and visual arts organizations throughout the Miami Valley.
“The Dayton arts community is diverse, dynamic and cutting edge,” said Pam McDonald, vice president of public and government affairs, Time Warner Cable. “It is also vital to the continued growth and success of the Miami Valley. Without a doubt, Culture Works is one of the key reasons this region has an arts community that much larger cities only wish for. We are very proud to lend our support to Culture Works.”
“Culture Works is exceedingly grateful for the generosity and commitment of Time Warner Cable to the greater Dayton arts community,” states Denise Rehg, president & CEO of Culture Works. “Dayton was recently voted 33rd in arts and culture out of 373 metropolitan regions reviewed across the nation in Cities Ranked and Rated. Time Warner’s gift will make a huge difference in sharing this message with Dayton area residents. We have a lot to celebrate in this community and it is the commitment of regional partners like Time Warner that makes it happen.”
