Event Sponsorship Opportunities

22 years ago, a group of philanthropists in neighboring Southland communities donated their time, talent and resources to build the Center for Performing Arts. Today the Center welcomes up to 60,000 patrons annually, making diverse Chicago-based, touring and community theatre, music, dance and education programs accessible to all Southland residents.

Our programs are the perfect way to make connections through the arts. We welcome the community to the stage, attract customers to businesses and find creative solutions to educate students in innovative ways that augment classroom learning.

If your company, organization or small business would like to be involved in keeping this jewel of the Southland a vibrant community resource for years to come, there are many opportunities to support at various levels:
