Azure Water Helps Sweet Treats for the ArtsFebruary 17, 2016
It’s a phase of life through which we all have passed: childhood. The early years of our lives fashion our intellects, shape our emotions and often thrust us upon a particular trajectory that animates our destinies.
We at Azure Water, the premier bottled water co-packers, understand the importance of providing children with the best opportunities and resources to lead successful lives, even if it involves sweet treats for the arts.
That’s why we helped sponsor efforts by the Educational Foundation of Lake County by providing the not-for-profit organization with specially designed labels and bottled water.
The labels’ focus: Sweet Treats for the Arts: Fashion Show Fundraiser.
The fundraiser was held late last month with the aim of raising money and “awareness to provide scholarships for financially at-risk kids through the arts,” according to Educational Foundation of Lake County.
More than 40 Lake County leaders participated in the event where local businesses provided school and other supplies. Students, parents and teachers at local high schools made treats for the fourth annual event.
Money raised goes to the foundation to help students who want to enter one of the high schools’ art-related programs, such as band, art class, theater, culinary arts, graphics, media or color guard. All of Lake County’s eight high schools may apply for scholarships for their students.
The foundation was formed in 1987 by local business leaders to provide “low-performing students” with homework help. Organizers worked with the Lake County School District to form nonprofit Dial-A-Teacher, which was changed to the Educational Foundation of Lake County in 1988.
Foundation programs include: Grants for Great Ideas, Back to School Backpack Fairs, Take Stock In Children, Teacher of the Year, Rookie Teacher of the Year, Employee and Volunteer of the Year, New Beginnings, and the LCS Science Fair. Fundraisers include: Renaissance Faire, Annual Golf Tournament, Ladies Fore Education, and Duck Race.
Azure Water’s resume for helping people in 2015 is thick. Azure Water helped: Leesburg Police Department’s National Night Out Sponsorship; Fruitland Park’s Heritage Community Church sponsor a mission trip to Nicaragua; MaryKatherine Fechtel’s bid to become Miss America (Fechtel of Leesburg won Miss Florida); a local Boys and Girls Club event; an event for New Vision for Independence in Lake Sumter counties; and the Leesburg Lightning, a local minor league baseball team.
