Main Street America Group, a Corporate Partner of the Florida Theatre since 2005, has announced its renewed support of the Theatre.
“Main Street America is proud to be a long-time supporter of the Florida Theatre as part of our commitment to support the communities where our employees live and work. The Theatre’s mission strongly resonates with our employees, who are regular patrons of the Theatre’s great programming. We are honored to associate ourselves with an organization such as the Florida Theatre, which has such a strong community presence,” said Dave Medvidofsky, Senior Vice President of Human Resources.
"The historic Florida Theatre is pleased to play its part in providing Northeast Florida with the music, dance and theatre programs that are part of what gives Jacksonville the unique character that we have all come to appreciate, and expect, as residents of a great city,” said Florida Theatre President, Numa Saisselin. “The theatre earns 85% of its annual budget from its business activities, and support from the business community, like our returning Corporate Partner Main Street America, helps to close that small budget gap every year and keep the Florida Theatre and its programs something special for our community.”
The historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre is sponsored by Community First Credit Union. For a complete list of upcoming events or to buy tickets visit the Theatre's official web site.
