Touring with the AVP this year includes U.S.A volleyball Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings among other top athletes. According to a survey featured on the AVP website, St. Petersburg is the tour stop that everyone is most excited about thus far. This nationally televised event will be an opportunity for local businesses to participate and act as sponsors.
“We graciously welcome AVP, and we look forward to having the opportunity to show the country what a surprisingly energizing community St. Petersburg is,” said St. Petersburg City Council Chair Karl Nurse.
Donald Sun, owner of AVP, announced that local businesses Evolution Music Werks and Farias Consulting Group will produce the event.
“AVP immediately expressed its desire to collaborate with local firms, and the fact that this event will take place downtown is a great opportunity for our city to shine again in the national eye,” said Mario Farias, CEO of Farias Consulting.
AVP representatives expressed that the city exuded all of the values of AVP: a healthy lifestyle, aesthetic beauty and warm, friendly people. But we already know this, don’t we, ‘Burgers?
