FNB PULLS OUT OF VITA REGIONAL THEATRE AWARDS (article first published : 2002-08-23)

News received from Phillip Stein and Georgina Thomson, Director and Manager of FNB Vita Awards respectively of Vita Promotions in Johannesburg reveals that First National Bank have elected to consolidate their cultural sponsorship into fewer initiatives and that FNB will no longer sponsor the Vita Regional Theatre Awards system, as of June 2003.

This was officially announced to the TMSA and Vita Promotions at a meeting held with Vicki Trehaeven from First National Bank on August 13, 2002.

To provide interested parties in each region the opportunity to find a new sponsor for these awards, FNB will continue to sponsor the back-up administration undertaken by Vita Promotions, for the period of June 1, 2002, to May 31, 2003. This does not include the Awards grants or functions at which they are presented as ideally a "new" sponsor should be able to take the limelight.

The TMSA - Johannesburg Vita Committee mentioned at the meeting referred to above that they would speak to other members but would, in all probability motivate for the awards to assume regional accountability. This would therefore leave the option open for interested parties in Cape Town, Durban and Bloemfontein to continue the system in their region.

More details from Vita Promotions on 011 442-8446/9.
