Friends of the Florence Events Center
Florence Arts, Culture & Entertainment (FACE) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit entity created in the early 1990s for the purpose of providing support to the Florence Events Center (FEC). This support takes many forms including planning and executing various fundraisers and providing many volunteer hours. The largest fundraisers are the Winter Music Festival and the Festival of Books. Net proceeds support additional fundraisers and FEC projects as requested by the FEC Director.
FACE is run by a board of directors elected to two-year terms. The board holds monthly meetings and works closely with the FEC Director and staff. A cornerstone of FACE’s annual agenda is the distribution of performance grants to qualifying nonprofits. Grants are awarded based on an annual application process and total approximately $5,000 each year.
Membership hovers around 100 and volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to, ushering at events, backstage support, lighting, planning and executing events, fundraising, publicity, event set-up and breakdown, and administrative assistance. Click here for more information about FACE.
