Our Heart of Carmel Project 
Leadership Carmel is pleased to announce its legacy gift to the City of Carmel, a temporary art exhibit; Heart of Carmel. This summer, we will showcase artistically painted hearts throughout downtown to unify our community. Our Hearts will celebrate public art, engage community interest and promote exposure to local businesses.
The hearts will be auctioned off in the Fall. The funds will be used to support our future leaders with scholarships through the Carmel Woman’s Club and the Carmel Chamber’s Leadership Program.
Leadership Carmel is inviting local businesses and community members to sponsor a Heart and showcase their business and community support.
We would love your help in supporting this project. Please reach out today to learn more about sponsorship opportunities and ways you can be involved! Message us here or leadershipcarmel@gmail.com for details.
