Letter to Members

Summer, 2016

A message from FAB! President, Jayne Mills

To all my FAB! friends,

It is my pleasure, as the newly elected President of FAB!, to ring in our 14th FABulous season.  As a founding member, I have seen this organization grow and impact our community in so many ways.  Since then, we have given in excess of $2.6 million to local arts organizations, doing our part to keep the arts we love healthy and vibrant.  Your important gifts to FAB! continue to enhance the quality of life for children and adults alike, touching the lives of over 54,000 program attendees in 2014 alone!

This year holds more exciting momentum as we continue to implement the strategies we collectively agreed are important for FAB’s future:

  • We have a new look and logo!  Check out our website www.fundingartsbroward.org
  • We are committed to getting the word out about FAB!. Watch for our new e-newsletter, as we communicate the impact of our grants.
  • Join us for informative, entertaining luncheon programs now at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and for exclusive FAB! Fun events.
  • Mark your calendar for our most FABulous kick-off event yet on Wednesday evening, Oct. 19, 2016 at a very special Ft. Lauderdale home with a private art collection.

The most exciting news of all is the FAB! Visionary Fund.  Through new memberships as well as gifts to the fund, we are eligible to receive up to $25,000 in matching funds this year and for the next two years from the David and Francie Horvitz Family Foundation.  Watch for more details in the coming weeks and talk to your friends about joining FAB!.

Finally, I want to welcome our new board members, Gail Auguston-Koppen, Jane Caragher, Patricia Dumont, Karla Nickell, and Harvey Shapiro.  I also want to thank our out-going President, Elaine Blattner, for her dedication to FAB and her invaluable leadership last season.  A special thank you to long-time board members Cindy Kashdin, Jessica Olefson, and past president, Drazia Rubenstein, as they leave the board but continue to offer help and guidance.

Thank you again for your generous support of FAB!.
