Nonprofit Piedmont Landscape Association Seminar at The Paramount

Nonprofit Renters Hold a Special Place in Our Hearts!

Did you know that The Paramount Theater is a nonprofit organization?

As a nonprofit, we at The Paramount make our best effort to support other Charlottesville-Albemarle area nonprofits to ensure that the community has access to services at the Theater at an affordable price. One way that we make this effort is by offering a special rates to nonprofit organizations wishing to rent the space.

We are particularly excited to welcome a nonprofit that has been a longstanding friend of The Paramount – the Piedmont Landscape Association!

On Thursday, February 16, the Piedmont Landscape Association will hold their annual seminar at The Paramount. A day-long event that draws in hundreds of landscaping experts and enthusiasts, the PLA Seminar covers topics ranging from gardening best practices to the evolution of the horticulture industry. The 2017 PLA Seminar will feature such knowledgeable speakers as Allan Armitage, Nancy Ross Hugo, and Peggy Singlemann.

Tickets to the PLA Seminar are still available and can be purchased HERE.

We are always thrilled to welcome nonprofits to The Paramount – reach out to us today to ask about our nonprofit rate for your next event!


Vote for Coach Tony Bennett in the Infiniti Coaches’ Challenge

The tension was palpable in the Theater last night as UVA went into double overtime with the rival Hokies – an exciting ACC basketball game that was broadcasted live on the big screen at The Paramount. Though we were sad to see the University of Virginia men’s basketball team lose such a tight game, we will always be proud of our hard-working Hoos!

We are even more proud of the incredible spirit of Coach Tony Bennett, who is not only a resilient coach, but an inspiring community leader.

This February, Coach Bennett is participating in the Infinity Coaches’ Charity Challenge, sponsored by ESPN, in which the winner receives a grand prize in the charity of their choosing. Coach Bennett has chosen the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank – and if he wins the vote, BRAFB will receive 400,000 meals for hungry Charlottesville locals!

You can vote for Coach Bennett by visiting www.espn/infiniti. You can vote daily, and what’s more, your vote enters you into a sweepstakes with prizes including signed memorabilia!
