PRLog (Press Release) - Apr. 27, 2011 - Docucopies.com, a leading provider of cheap color copies and printing, once again showed their dedication to arts education by sponsoring the 2011 Urban Arts Academy Gala and Silent Auction in south Minneapolis.
The event featured food, wine, and a silent and live auction, with items ranging from paintings and sporting-event tickets to iPads and vacation packages.
Docucopies.com has long supported the Urban Arts Academy, a non-profit organization based in south Minneapolis which provides free after-school and summer arts programs for over 80 neighborhood youth. The organization's mission is especially important in this neighborhood, which has had a history of high crime and poor student performance in public schools.
By providing a creative release for children in the area, the organization is able to keep kids in a fun, safe environment while helping them realize their artistic potential. The organization also provides essential help with academic basics, such as homework and tutoring.
"We believe a well-rounded arts education is integral to a child's future," says David Pressley, CEO of the color copying company. "We're proud to be sponsoring this organization that provides so many essential programs for kids who need it the most."
