PRESS RELEASE: Pullman & Comley, LLC Hosts Event To Kick Off Greater Hartford Arts Council 2012 Workplace Campaign

June 6, 2012

HARTFORD:  Employees of the Hartford offices of Pullman & Comley LLC and Wells Fargo gathered at Pullman & Comley’s office at 90 State House Square on Wednesday, May 23 for a lunchtime concert with Carolyn Kuan, Music Director and Greig Shearer (pictured), principal flutist with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra.  The event kicked off the firms’ Greater Hartford Arts Council 2012 Workplace Campaign. 

Each year, the Greater Hartford Arts Council asks businesses, individuals and foundations to invest in the more than 150 area arts & heritage organizations by making a contribution to the annual United Arts Campaign. During the campaign the Council solicits leadership support from local corporations and major donors, runs workplace giving events in businesses of all sizes to motivate employee gifts, plans fundraising and community events to celebrate the arts and asks the residents of Greater Hartford to contribute.

Pullman & Comley LLC has a strong tradition of supporting the Greater Hartford Arts Council, and in 2009 its Hartford office achieved 100 percent employee participation in the annual workplace campaign.  Attorney Morris W. Banks is a member of the Council’s board of directors and serves as vice president and chair of the Governance Committee.
