Dr. Phillips Center Launches Name a Seat Campaign
March 18, 2015– Orlando, Fla. – The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts announces its Name a Seat campaign, inviting supporters of the arts to literally be a part of the arts center.
“There are 2,700 reasons to contribute to the Dr. Phillips Center’s Name a Seat Campaign,” said Kathy Ramsberger, CEO and president of the Dr. Phillips Center. “Each seat in the Walt Disney Theater represents a person – the people who come here as our guests to experience the arts, the artists who perform on the stage, and our staff who makes it all happen.”
Naming a seat in the timeless Walt Disney Theater is a lasting contribution to the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. The Name a Seat campaign allows individuals to celebrate their passion for the arts, their family, their friends, their business, or the memory of a loved one. The Walt Disney Theater is a state-of-the art amplified theater and the largest at the Dr. Phillips Center. Seating is designed to ensure that every guest has an unsurpassed view of the stage, creating the perfect setting in which to enjoy the finest performances of Broadway, touring productions and artists from around the world.
Names will be engraved on an elegantly designed plaque affixed to a permanent seat. The naming opportunity is through 2025 or for the life of the theater seats. Once supporters decide on a level of commitment they will be given a confirmation of their seat and location. Naming a seat is a great contribution to the Dr. Phillips Center that will allow supporters to be recognized by all the guests who visit. Naming a seat does not guarantee that guests will be sitting in their named seat for the performances they attend.
The Name a Seat plaque is roughly 4.6 inches wide and .94 inches tall. There is a maximum of two lines per
plaque and the inscription will be centered and proper names will be a
bold type. Deadline for plaque installation is May 31, 2015. After this date, plaques will be installed on a quarterly basis. The use of telephone numbers, websites, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses and social media handles may not be used. All messaging will be approved by the Dr. Phillips Center and will follow the specific naming recognition guidelines and cannot be personalized further. Supporters will receive a confirmation of their final plaque design. Interested supporters may complete the process online at drphillipscenter.org/nameaseat or by filling out and submitting a form at the Dr. Phillips Center Concierge Desk or by contacting the Philanthropy Team at
407.839.0119 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seat naming gifts are fully deductible, and do not include tangible benefits of goods and services. Supporters may choose their level of commitment to the Dr. Phillips Center:
