Local Idyllwild Business, The Monterey Company, Promotes Jazz for Charity

The Annual Idyllwild Jazz in the Pines Festival Comes to Town, and a Local Lapel Pin Manufacturer, The Monterey Company, Donates 1,000 Pins to Promote the Festival, Whose Proceeds Benefit the Idyllwild Arts Academy

IDYLLWILD, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2010) -  The Monterey Company has seen almost 30% growth each year since its start, and at the 2010 local Jazz Festival, they put some of that money to good use. This year's Idyllwild Jazz in the Pines Festival took place at the end of August, and The Monterey Company used their expertise in metalworking to help promote the charitable event.

"We have a very strong tie to the local community," says Monterey Company's President and Founder, Paul Stark. "The Monterey Company has a strong commitment to supporting education and the arts whenever we can."

The metalworking specialists consider this kind of festival to be right up their alley. Each year, the Idyllwild Jazz in the Pines Festival benefits the Idyllwild Arts Academy, a local academy that focuses on educating the artist as well as the scholar.

"We were so excited about the lapel pins that The Monterey Company donated to this year's festival. The purpose of the annual Idyllwild Jazz Festival is to raise scholarship funds to assist students attending the Idyllwild Arts Academy and Summer Program, located in the mountain community of Idyllwild, California," Anne Finch, the Festival organizer states. "In addition to the design work and production of our logo being perfectly executed, Monterey contributed to a program that helped raise thousands of dollars for the Associates of the Idyllwild Arts Foundation's scholarship fund."

The Monterey Company donated 1,000 customized lapel pins to the event. The Idyllwild Jazz festival takes place each year at the end of August to help raise scholarship funds for students attending the following academic year. An internationally acclaimed boarding school, the academy welcomes young artists from all over the globe to hone their talents here. The Monterey Company hopes to continue its relationship with the program.
