Dr. Carol F. Probstfeld, president of State College of Florida, welcomed over 1,500 guests to the 31st annual Evening Under the Stars, which was co-chaired by Linda Bradway and Debi Cohoon.
Caldwell Trust Company participated both as an event sponsor
and a repeat competitor in the table décor contest. This year’s theme was “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” welcoming the Atlanta Braves Spring Training Facility and baseball to the Venice community.
Over 1500+ guests enjoyed student entertainment, musicians, vocalists, the Venice Symphony and a grand fireworks finale. Caldwell also enjoyed first-place honors in the table décor contest, tied for the distinction with Venice Regional Bayfront Health.
Sheryl Vieira (pictured above), Caldwell’s vice president of marketing and public relations, reached out to her artist friend Timothy Raines to purchase one of his licensed MLB Atlanta Braves prints (pictured left) to incorporate into Caldwell’s table décor.
With the theme being baseball, it was appropriate to have guests download an app called Artivive, so they could personally view on their smart phone or device, the infamous Hank Aaron career home run video once they opened the app and pointed it to Tim’s artwork on the Caldwell table.
