Gala Sponsor Spotlight: Audrey Sullivan and Kent Wilhelmi

Audrey Sullivan and Kent Wilhelmi are proud to be LCVA Gala sponsors!

"When we were considering moving to Farmville, I saw the LCVA as a beacon of hope for the arts in this community. I knew it to be a college town but seeing the LCVA as such an integral part of the community, I took it as a sign that this was indeed a place where the arts were welcome. We've both come to enjoy the exhibits and events offered in this amazing place and look forward to attending our very first Winter Gala!"
