In addition to our free publications, we’re proud to contribute to our community by actively supporting many non-profits, arts organizations and events in their missions—all while remaining committed to the environment through green practices. Below you’ll find a list of some of the many groups we are pleased to support. We are also proud to sponsor and participate in many special events throughout the year from national acts like Disney on Ice to local events like the PBS Kids Book Festival. We do this not only because we love how wonderful Charlottesville is and we want to make it even stronger but also because for our advertisers this means exclusive editorial, publications distributed directly to attendees plus our friendly and professional staff at the event to chat about our wonderful advertisers with guests! Unlike any other publication, we work hard to promote your industry and support our advertisers with special events.
Here are some of the events and organizations we’re proud to support:
Historic Garden Week, Monticello Artisans Trail, Brooks Family YMCA, Children, Youth and Family Services, Monticello Wine Trail Festival, Computers for Kids, Toy Lift, Foxfield Races, University of Virginia Children’s Medical Center, Virginia Discovery Museum, Virginia Festival of the Book, Blue Ridge Home Builders Parade, Monticello Wine Trail, Montpelier Hunt Races, Martha’s Market, Heritage Harvest Festival, Grace Church Historic Farm Tours, Meet Yer Eats Far Tour, Montpelier Wine Festival, Quadruplicity, Crozet Arts & Crafts Festival, The Paramount Theater and many more!
We are active in Charlottesville’s Business community, too!
