The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance (SPAA) is delighted to present the third annual “Arts Advocate of the Year” Award to Shanna & Bryan Glazer at SPAA’s Garden Party Brunch, Hats Off to the Arts. The Glazers have supported the arts throughout the Tampa Bay area, including the Glazer Children's Museum, the SHINE Mural Festival, and the Golding Visual Arts Center at the Shanna & Bryan Glazer JCC.


The spectacular event will be held on Sunday May 5th at the Snell-Bishop Estate beginning at 11am.  The award will be presented by Brian Auld, President of the Tampa Bay Rays & Rowdies and our 2023 Arts Advocate of the Year. Sponsorships and tickets are available now.


Steve and Marie Beaty will be the co-chairs of the event. Sue and Richard Knipe will serve as honorary co-chairs, who graciously opened the grounds of their estate to support the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance and our mission.


Hats Off to the Arts recognizes the impact of the arts on the growth of our city! Join us in this celebration to enjoy special live performances, and delicious brunch-inspired delights, as well as a live auction and chance drawing supporting the arts.
