Budget Car Sales presents Via Colori 2017!
As Via Colori, one of Kentucky’s most unique and innovative art festivals, prepares for its move to Louisville Waterfront Park, more and more exciting news rolls in. It’s with great pleasure that Via Colori announces its partnership with well-known local Car Dealer Tony Malito. Mr. Malito says “”What I like most of Via is that so many people are able to come together in a uniquely beautiful way to help these children.”
We were able to find out a little more about Mr. Malito’s involvement with Via Colori through his associate, Lou Ramirez. In fact it was Lou who brought Via Colori to Tony’s attention in 2014. Lou says “Tony was made aware of my involvement in Via Colori 2014 while explaining the need to have off that Saturday as Opfor was given a platform for the first time at the festival. This gave me a chance to explain true purpose of the event in the community.”
Though Budget for the People, owned by Mr. Malito, will be the presenting sponsor of the 2017 Via Colori, it won’t be the first time they have helped support the festival. Mr. Malito has actively supported Via Colori and its beneficiary New Beginnings Foundation since 2014. He says “The real heroes are the families that take in the children in need, we do the easy part, and they are the ones saving lives.”
Via Colori attendees may get to run into Mr. Malito during the festival this year, as he will be attending the event. They should not, however, expect to see him painting, but he just might let his face get painted.
Though he is a fan of Via Colori in its own right, Mr. Malito’s “primary motivation is helping the children in need that this event will be raising resources and awareness for” and he hopes that his sponsorship and attendance will “encourage other businesses to get involved with local outreach projects that funnel resources to those truly in need, and hopes that this event succeeds at bringing a smile of inspiration to many.”
We hope that you will all join us at the 2017 Via Colori festival, which marks the tenth anniversary of the festival. With the move to Louisville, the event promises to be the largest yet, as the relocation will allow the event to expand considerably, offering space for more street painters, vendors and costumed entertainers.Share
