AFE Fundraising Dinner slated for Sept. 13

The 42nd annual American Floral Endowment Fundraising Dinner will be held on Sept. 13, in Palm Springs, CA, during the Society of American Florists’ Annual Convention. This year’s theme, “Shining Stars = Bright Futures,” is a shout-out to those who help create bright futures for the floriculture industry, according to a news release.

AFE During the event, AFE will highlight many of the industry successes made possible though AFE funded programs and will pay tribute to the shining stars (donors) that supported these programs.

AFE’s largest fundraising event of year brings industry members together to network, learn about programs and resources available through AFE, while raising money for future floriculture programs to advance the industry. They hope to reach their 2018 fundraising goal of $100,000.

AFE research, grants, scholarships, and internship programs are only possible due to the ongoing support of industry members. At the Fundraising Dinner, AFE will report on significant advances, recognize donors reaching new giving levels, report on new programs and announce the new officers and directors.
