The Fine Arts Association’s Race to Embrace the Arts: a “$25K” On-line Fundraising Auction kicks off June 15, 2020 and runs through July 17, 2020. This on-line auction will replace the annual fundraising in-person gala which has always been FAA’s major fundraiser. Race to Embrace the Arts will be honoring our most senior board emeritus, Alan Wright and his wife Gloria both of whom have served as leaders actively supporting the arts at FAA and throughout North East Ohio over the many years. FAA is counting on its friends, family and community to participate in the auction and to share the link with family and friends. All non-profits, including arts organizations are struggling at this time. While FAA, since 1957, has successfully weathered ups and downs, this could not be done without the support of the community. Funds from this fundraiser will support operations so that FAA can continue to provide programs, services, grant funded initiatives, music & art therapies, virtual learning, scholarships and so much more. It’s time to get on your mark, get set, the race for the arts is about to begin!

Stay tuned on our social media accounts for more highlights and the release of a “sneak peak” to the on-line auction site!
