National Bank of Arizona Supports Ballet Arizona in a New Way

Ballet Arizona is an institution of Phoenix. Led by Ib Andersen, they create, perform, and teach outstanding classical and contemporary ballet. They serve the community in Central Arizona not only through their art, but with education and outreach programs that touch the lives of more than 35,000 children every year. The National Bank of Arizona gifted these unique, unisex donor thank you gifts to Ballet Arizona in order to support their efforts within the community.

Unisex Donor Thank You Gifts Made Possible By National Bank of Arizona

The Ballet had been looking for an innovative way to thank donors and to spread awareness for their robust program. Jami Kozemczak, the Director of Development & Marketing for Ballet Arizona, designed the bracelet with Kay McDonald, the CEO of Charity Charms. She chose this style because they wanted an item that would appeal to both male and female donors. The bracelets are targeted as a thank you gift for high end donors. However when she and her team saw the finished product, they realized that there might be many other applications as an awareness vehicle with impact.

The unisex, woven adjustable bracelet has a recycle pewter word bar that says: #BalletArizona. A branding bead charm hangs on the bracelet with the NBAZ logo on one side and a Ballet Slipper on the other. These Branding Beads solidify the co-branding for the Bank and the Ballet. The bracelet and card are presented in a lovely grey organza bag. Charity Charms created the bracelet with a custom message card acknowledging the generous donation from National Bank of Arizona. Mary Holman and Pam Keefe from National Bank of Arizona presented the bracelets in a large oval hatbox as a gift to the charity. They did this via a special visit to the Ballet office with Kay (which was recorded with fun photos and a video to help tell the story)


“Thank you so much for this!! We are so delighted to benefit from NBAZ and your charms.”
