On December 1st and 2nd, 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 sponsored and manned a children's art tent as well as helped the Chamber attract over 2,000 people to the two-day event.
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. To see some of the great event photos click here.
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.
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.
