Sponsorship News

SaskTel has let us know that they are returning as a $250 sponsor again this year.  

Enbridge is also coming back this year with $1,000.00. 

And SIGA is on board with $500 to sponsor our new initiatives for Indigenous Art. 

Combine these sponsors with those we already have along with ArtsVest and the Saskatoon Community Grant the total comes to almost $9000. Still lots of work to do, and not that much time left to do it.
