Funding Arts Broward (FAB), celebrating its 20th anniversary of preserving and cultivating the arts, will host its Annual Meeting and Reception on Tuesday, March 14, at DUNE by Laurent Tourondel. Attendees will enjoy a curated menu of specialty tapas, hand-selected wine pairings, and panoramic ocean views from the North Terrace while being serenaded by FAB grantee Brazilian Voices’ Beatriz Malnic, Loren Oliveira, and Viviane Neves performing American standards plus Bossa Nova and Samba favorites.

Since its inception in 2003, FAB has endowed grants of over $4 million to 65 small, mid-sized, and large professional performing and visual arts organizations.

FAB is also supported by its corporate partners BBX Capital, New River Fine Arts, Northern Trust, PNC Bank, Weston Jewelers, Pallant Insurance Agency, Casa D’Angelo, Tim Singer Realty and Twig, and Trade & Tribunal.

Ed Hashek, president of FAB informed that they have reached the halfway mark of $1.5 million raised for ‘Be the Spark’ campaign. The campaign was launched last year with a lead gift of $750,000 from FAB Founder Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz and had a total of more than $1.1 million pledged in advance of the campaign’s public announcement.
