HOW DOES MY PURCHASE SUPPORT THE ARTS?

Purchasers can select up to two groups to support. Funds are provided to the arts twice a year. If no arts group is selected, funds will be shared among other participating groups.
During your online purchase, you will be asked to designate a recipient from a drop-down list. You can also choose to have your donation distributed equally among all participants.
CAN I CHOOSE who to support?
The Fine Arts and Eats Card is valid until December 31st of the year designated on the front of the card. Each year, a new card is released allowing participating performing arts groups to raise funds annually.
DOES THE FINE ARTS AND EATS CARD EXPIRE?
Use the card as many times as you like until either its expiration or the business chooses to no longer participate. Check online listings often as new restaurants will be added on a regular basis.
HOW OFTEN CAN I USE MY CARD?
Supported performing arts groups pride themselves on their own innovative, creative, and independent drive. Much the same way, this card connects you with small businesses which are locally owned and operated. The main challenge facing independent arts groups and businesses alike is funding and cost control. Support of both supports your own local community.
On occasion, large chain type businesses may be included in the program because either they have shown great support of the local arts or they offer something unique.
WHY AREN’T LARGE CHAIN RESTAURANTS PARTICIPATING?
