"This year, in addition to lending our furniture to decorate for the gala, we’ll be donating this vintage Moroccan rag rug for the art auction. We’re excited to showcase the exotic art we’re able to sell right here in Farmville, while also supporting such an amazing cause that introduces the children in our community to the arts and makes it a better place to shop and live."

"Having access and exposure to the arts is essential for a strong, well rounded educational system. Children in our rural communities would have very limited access to the arts were it not for the programs and services of the LCVA. We are thankful to have the LCVA here in Downtown Farmville and are proud to sponsor this important community outreach."

"Longwood Center of Visual Arts has always been an important component to the Farmville community. The Center provides programs to a large area for people of all ages. This is why it was an easy decision to become sponsors. We are very honored to serve as co-chairs of the 2016 LCVA Gala. The Gala is the premier black tie event and shouldn't be missed. There is something for everyone, including fine art, excellent cuisine, and dancing into the night."
