Houston, TX, (November 22, 2013)—Worldwide Power Products (WPP), a power-generation equipment provider to industrial and petroleum clients worldwide, today announced it will be sponsoring the VIP Tent at the Houston Via Colori Street Painting Festival, scheduled for November 23-24, 2013. The free event spotlights the creative performance of live street painting and raises critical funds to support The Center for Hearing and Speech.
“It never ceases to amaze me as I watch each mural take shape. The uncompromising support we receive from Houston, and companies like Worldwide Power Products, makes it all possible,” said Renée S. Davis, executive director of CHS. “Our artists, musicians and sponsors make this festival a unique hit with both Houstonians and tourists. We are proud that we can share this outdoor art gallery with the entire community.”
Now in its 8th year, the Via Colori Street Painting Festival numbers among Southern Living’s Top 10 Best Festivals in the Southwest. The Center for Hearing and Speech uses the proceeds from this event to deliver fundamental health and educational services in the interest of hearing-impaired children.
“WPP is excited and honored help cultivate such a signature event,” said WPP President Will Perry. “Our long-term commitment to the Houston community motivates us to partner with the Center to build community awareness about hearing loss in children.”
A presentation of LINN Energy, Via Colori has become one of Houston’s signature art and live performance festivals. Three stages provide an audience of tens of thousands with music of all genres while they enjoy food and drinks.
“Via Colori is a great opportunity for all WPP employees and families to participate in this major downtown arts and music festival while they relax and enjoy the vibrant diversity of Houston,” said WPP Executive VP Mark Lum. “Support for the Center benefits the public’s civic pride, the local artists and the city’s tourism.”
