Art for Change showcases not only the work of local artists and collectors but also locally-owned restaurants. Every year, local restaurants and caterers have the opportunity to showcase their cuisine to 1,000 of our guests, many of whom are among Pittsburgh’s most affluent and socially active.


As a thank you for their donation of a sampling station staffed by their employees, restaurant sponsors receive:

  • two complimentary VIP tickets to Art for Change,

  • logo recognition in all digital advertising to Persad’s full contact list (6,500+),

  • a social media post with tag highlighting their business, business name inclusion in all print campaigns,

  • inclusion in all digital campaigns,

  • recognition on signage throughout the event,

  • a social media post with tag following the event with a high-quality photo of their food station at the event,

  • and the rights to all high-quality, professional photography of their food station at the event to use for their own purposes.
