On Wednesday, October 2, 2013, the Business Committee for the Arts will honor 10 businesses who have forged exceptional partnerships with the arts.The BCA 10: Best Businesses Partnering with the Arts in America Awards Gala is a night where business leaders come together to remind us just why we do what we do; why the arts matter. With a broad list of BCA 10 companies spanning from the Pacific Northwest to the sunny southern states to the northeastern shores and all points in between, this year’s slate of honorees continue to be on the vanguard of arts and business partnerships. These companies have been chosen as forward-thinking models that are worthy of emulation and replication throughout the United States and beyond. It is with this in mind that we raise our glass to the 2013 BCA 10 honorees, because as they continue to show us, when arts and businesses partner, everyone profits.
