The CLAY BALL – Clayworks’ Annual Gala – Sponsorship Opportunities

Be a part of celebrating Baltimore Clayworks, one Maryland’s leading non-profit arts organizations and a nationally recognized ceramic art center. The Clay Ball draws hundreds of gala attendees each year. With over 250 people in attendance and over 7,000 people reached in promoting the event, sponsoring the Clay Ball not only provides the opportunity to support a good cause, but promote your business as well.

All proceeds from this event will help to provide core funding for the educational, artistic and collaborative programs at Baltimore Clayworks. Clayworks serves over 15,000 residents and visitors to Baltimore over the year from attendance at shows and exhibitions to students in classes and participants in our Clay for All! community arts satellite studios. The Clay Ball raises over $100,000 in operating support from ticket sales, sponsorships and proceeds from the auction. This support enables us to continue to fulfill our mission to develop, sustain, and promote an artist-centered community that provides outstanding artistic, educational, and collaborative programs in ceramic arts.

Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of this exciting event. Call Sarah McCann, Development Director today to discuss how your business can be involved at 410-578-1919 x14. See below for sponsorship levels and benefits.
