Sponsorship Alert: Florida Works
With Gainesville Fashion Week being less than a month away (April 11-15), we want to take some time out to appreciate our sponsors. Their contributions and support is absolutely vital to fashion week.
Florida Works is not only one of our top sponsors, but a local inspiration and positive force in the Alachua and Bradford County community. Florida Works strives to increase employment and support growing businesses. There couldn’t be a mission more closely tied to Gainesville Fashion Week, as both GFW and Florida Works want to support local entrepreneurs and business owners by giving them opportunities to showcase their work and network among people like them...people like you.
Beyond their talent and creativity, our designers, artists and musicians are also business owners. That’s why Florida Works hits us so close to home. Without a good business model and support from the community, these creative local talents can’t reach their full potential.
Florida Works won the 2011 Chairman’s Award from the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce for fostering job growth. Gainesville was also named the Region of Excellence by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for a Competitive Workforce for its sustained, collaborative approach to economic development through education and workforce development.
We couldn’t he happier about Florida Works joining our Gainesville Fashion Week family and supporting jobs in the arts with us!
