BLUMENTHAL PERFORMING ARTS STANDS WITH WELLS FARGO
Sep 7, 2016
The criticism Wells Fargo has taken for its recent Teen Financial Education Day advertising campaign is unfortunate and unwarranted.
Wells Fargo has proven to be deeply committed to arts education, access to arts and culture for all citizens. That is why Wells is being honored next week as the inaugural recipient of the Business Leaders for the Arts Award.
At Blumenthal, Wells has supported excellence in the arts and education by encouraging our kids to dream big dreams. They are the founding sponsor of our High School Musical Theater Awards, The Blumey Awards.
Their support of excellence has nurtured talented performers whom we celebrate. It has also nurtured business leaders, educators and others who are making our community better.
Through its gifts, Wells Fargo has demonstrated that support for the arts raises test scores, improves attendance and helps students succeed. We thank them for that vision, commitment and leadership.
