St. Petersburg, FL October 8, 2014
Saint Petersburg Preservation, Inc. (SPP) is pleased to invite the public to our 2014 Preservation Awards Shindig. The event will take place on Friday, October 24th, from 6 to 9 pm at the Studio at 620 at 620 1st Ave South.
Guests will enjoy an evening of art, music, food and drink, as we honor the people, associations, and businesses that work to preserve, restore, and complement the city’s historic buildings and places. This year SPP will unveil a special new award: a flag that winners can proudly fly outside of their home or business showing that they are the recipient of a Preservation Award.
The evening will feature an exhibit and sale of watercolor paintings of area landmarks by artist Robert Holmes, who has generously donated his work to St. Petersburg Preservation as a fundraiser for the organization.
Event tickets are just $10 and include heavy hors d’oeuvres. Members of St. Petersburg Preservation also receive two complimentary drink tickets. Reservations can be made online at www.stpetepreservation.org
The Preservation Awards recognize exemplary efforts in historic preservation in four categories: Residential and Commercial Restoration and Rehabilitation; Compatible Infill; Adaptive Reuse; and Residential and Commercial Stewardship. There will also be an award for Preservationist of the Year.
SPP works to foster an appreciation of St. Petersburg’s historic environment by educating the public about local historic resources, landmarking deserving sites and structures, and recognizing the people and business that help achieve this goal.
Southern Roots Realty, a local boutique real estate firm with five generations of Florida real estate experience, is proud to sponsor the St. Petersburg Preservations Awards. They have dedicated their business to representing clients in the purchase or sale of unique, historic and mid-century homes, as well as properties that fit every lifestyle. Their goal is to sell a true piece of Florida history, not just a house.
SPP would like to extend a warm thank you to Southern Roots Realty and our other event sponsors Robin and Joseph Reed.
