Artists tip hats to business supporters
The 2007 Globe and Mail Business for the Arts Awards gala brought together 250 celebrators from the arts and business sets last night in Toronto. Now in its 30th year, the awards are presented to businesses that have made a significant contribution to the Canadian arts landscape and are organized by the Business for the Arts group. For their contributions as the founding sponsor of young musician training programs with the Toronto-based Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, Toronto-Dominion Bank received the Most Effective Corporate Program award. The 2007 Edmund C. Bovey Award, which recognizes business people who support the arts, was also presented to Donald K. Johnson, former vice-chairman of BMO Nesbitt Burns. Blue Note Mining Inc. (more on Michael Judson & Blue Note) picked up the First Dance Award for their first foray into the arts world by stepping up to become the biggest corporate sponsor for Montreal’s Infinitheatre, an alternative English-speaking theatre. A pair of Vancouver firms were also honoured. The Rosedale on Robson Suite Hotel took home the Best Arts/Entrepreneur Partnership award for its work with the Pacific Theatre. Rethink Advertising won the award for Most Innovative Marketing Sponsorship.
