Jobsite welcomes new season sponsor, and other groovy news

We are very honored to welcome our newest season sponsor, the Gobioff Foundation, who recently made the largest financial contribution Jobsite has received in our 11-year history.

The Gobioff Foundation’s gift places them alongside in-kind season partners such as Creative Loafing, Bright House Networks and Discount Printing and Graphics.

This staggeringly generous gift will help ensure that Jobsite is not only able to continue our work here in Tampa Bay, but also allow us to continue to raise the bar in what we do – from production values to the payment of our artists to helping us secure rights to top-quality material in advance. It’s also hopefully the first of many major foundation gifts to Jobsite as we continue to look for alternate funding sources to supplement ticket sales.

From everyone at Jobsite, we are most humbled by this donation and thank the Gobioff Foundation for this amazing show of support.

We are also happy to report that we had over 100 people in attendance at our Jobsite Rocks fundraiser this past Saturday night at Ybor’s New World Brewery, and took in over $2,000 associated with the event. Thanks to Christen Petitt for all of her work on the event as well as New World Brewery for hosting us and King of Spain, The Vodkanauts, Zero Time Ghosts and Bird Street Players for providing the great music. We’re also extremely thankful for the various prizes donated to our raffle from the likes of MAC, Cabot Creamery, the Don Cesar, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and many others. In addition to it being our signature fundraiser, we’d like to think of it as one hell of an end-of-the-year party and it seems by all accounts that it was a rousing success.

If you would like to make a gift to Jobsite before the end of 2009, bearing in mind that all gifts made to Jobsite are fully tax-deductible to the extent provided by law, visit our website.
