CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (June 2011) – Ivy Publications is dedicated to enriching lives in the Charlottesville-Albemarle community through the support of the Arts and our community’s non-profits. In addition to our free publications for families, visitors and newcomers, we’re proud to contribute to our community by actively supporting arts and charitable organizations with our advertising and support in print and online in our award-winning publications, The Charlottesville Welcome Book, AlbemarleFamily Living Magazine and our newest title, Locally Charlottesville.
Last year we were pleased to award more than $80,000 in advertising to organizations, including Camp Holiday Trails, Paramount Theater, Virginia Festival of the Book, Martha’s Market, PBS, Toy Lift, BAMA Works and the UVA Art Museum, to name a few.
“There are so many wonderful organizations that make Charlottesville unique,” says co-publisher Jennifer Bryerton. “And at Ivy Publications, we want to support Charlottesville’s art, in an effort to keep these one-of-a-kind events and performances ongoing, year after year. We want our children, and our children’s children, to be able to enjoy them as much as we have!”
Co-publisher Robin Johnson Bethke adds, “Whether we’re talking about free cultural events, recreation programs or support services like the fabulous offerings provided by organizations like Children, Youth and Family Services, Charlottesville is a supportive community, where neighbors help one another. We’re proud to be a part of this Charlottesville community and doing our part.”
