The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance (SPAA) invites you to our inaugural Garden Party Brunch to celebrate the impact of the arts on the growth of our city. Join us in honoring Melissa Seixas, Duke Energy Florida State president, as SPAA’s FIRST “Arts Advocate of the Year”. Ms. Seixas was the originator of the idea of creating a Comprehensive Arts Strategy for the City of St. Petersburg and took that idea to Jason Mathis, CEO of the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership, who involved SPAA and the rest is history.
Meet and mingle outside on the grounds of this luscious estate while enjoying special live performances, and brunch-inspired hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Your experience begins with live theatrical, movement, and musical performances throughout the beautiful gardens overlooking the bay. Enjoy gourmet bites and beverages and opportunities to support SPAA’s work for the arts in our community, and most importantly, the honoring of Melissa Seixas, Arts Advocate of the Year.
And let’s make it even more fun by donning a fantastic hat that speaks to your own creative genius. Special prizes will be awarded to the “Most Beautiful,” “Most Creative,” and “Most Humorous” hat.
The celebration will promote continued support of programs and resources for local artists and arts institutions that ignite creativity, community, and prosperity. Proceeds from this inaugural event will provide support for:
Arts Education – in school and after school.
