    On Saturday, Oct. 6, The Kent Bellows Studio, an Omaha center for youth artist mentorship programming, will celebrate a milestone with its five-year anniversary and introduce its inaugural signature event, the WISHBONE Gala.

    In addition to being a first for The Kent Bellows Studio, this event will unveil a unique and versatile commercial space, the fully renovated Omar Baking Company building on 4383 Nicholas Street.

    WISHBONE 2012 promises to be a remarkable celebration that will break the traditional gala/fundraiser mold by bringing together a stunning showcase of 2012 student and mentor artwork as well as a one-night-only gallery of an exclusive collection of Kent Bellows' work.

    The event itself, produced by experiential marketing firm, STEP Group, will move guests through a series of mini "venues," including a cocktail lounge, pop-up art gallery, catering stations, and interstitial live entertainment by Quixotic Fusion. Playing off the veracity of Kent's work, internationally renowned Quixotic Fusion (quixoticfusion.com) will be integrated into the event atmosphere with performances throughout the evening, incorporating dance, music, as well as video and animation, highlighting Bellows' and student art themes.

    The Kent Bellows Studio seeks to provide young artists with an environment of creative growth and support; in order to continue their young tradition of service to the community, the Studio is seeking to grow its base of supporters and generate operating revenue with this inaugural WISHBONE event.

    For more information regarding the WISHBONE 2012 event, contact STEP Group, Caroline Hinrichs, 402.312.6238.

    For information about the Kent Bellows Studio, contact Executive Director, Anne Meysenburg.

    What is First Aid Cellular? First Aid Cellular ® is a Customer Centric and exceptionally cost effective Smartphone repair business that offers solutions for individuals and institutions alike.

    With First Aid Cellular's ® exclusive mobile, retail location and mail-in service, you get Smartphone repair directly at your business, home, or you can even come to us.

    How Does First Aid Cellular ® Save Me or My Business Money? First Aid Cellular ® saves you considerable money when factoring nearly every repair option available. Take, for instance, insurance provided by AT&T. AT&T charges $6.99 for monthly iPhone insurance. It is tempting and logical to believe that your monthly $6.99 insurance premium alone will cover your iPhone should you inadvertently damage it. It is actually much more costly.

    Consider, for example, that you own your iPhone for 18 months and pay monthly insurance premiums of $6.99. On month 18 you crack your screen. In premiums alone, you are paying over $124. AT&T charges, in addition to those monthly premiums, $199 as a deductible*. In total you pay over $324 to cover your cracked screen.

    First Aid Cellular ®, on the other hand, simply charges around $100 for that very same repair. That is $224 in savings! Bottom Line... If your business has say 1000 employees, that are utilizing iPhones, you can expect that 10% or more, on average, crack their screens. If we utilize the above example and incorporate the values of 18 months of premiums and the $199 deductible we come up with this:

    Premiums- 1000 x $6.99 x 18 mos = $125,820 10%
    Deductibles- 100 x $199 = $19,900 Total = $145,720
    First Aid Cellular = $10,000

    First Aid Cellular ®, on the other hand, brings the repair to you, charges no monthly premium, has you repaired in minutes, and ultimately saves you over 90%.

    For more information, please contact: First Aid Cellular ® LLC repairs@firstaidcellular.com 855-866-4349 402-403-5808 *as of March 2012
