STARR Restaurants Return!

Fifth Sponsor throws hat in the ring for ArtStart

STARR Restaurants Votes YES for kids!
Stephen Starr, Philadelphia restaurateur, announced on Sunday that he is throwing his hat in the ring as an event sponsor. Starr was a frontrunner in supporting last year's ArtStart.
In addition to a Starr's sponsorship, there will be appetizers from STARR restaurants to complement Beijing's dinner buffet, and gift cards to heat up the bidding in the evening's silent auction.
STARR Restaurants is the latest in the field of 2017 event sponsors that currently includes FS Investments, Ballard Spahr, LLP, Beijing, and Jeff "City" Block.
Sponsorships levels for ArtStart range from $125 - $500 for ticket sponsorships, and go up to $3,000 for corporate sponsorships. 
Here is the ArtStart 2017 Sponsorship Form for more information.
Proceeds from ArtStart are dedicated to PIC's tuition assistance program and will be used to support children from economically-disadvantaged backgrounds.
Our goal this year is to solicit more than $10,000 in sponsorships and you can help! Families and friends can join together to form a sponsorship. Employers are good sources of sponsorship, too!
