AFE will hold its 43rd Annual Fundraising & Recognition Dinner on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019, during the Society of American Florist's Annual Convention in Amelia Island, FL.
During the event, attendees will celebrate the industry successes made possible through AFE-funded programs and pay tribute to the donors who supported these programs.
“The Endowment continues to establish and administer great new initiatives to open new paths to support research, recruit the next generation of workers, and support educational programs for industry members,” said AFE Chairman and Vice President of Smithers-Oasis/Floralife, Jim Daly. “Our fundraising dinner will show the importance of industry contributions and how they are used to continue these much-needed programs.”
As AFE’s only major fundraising event of the year, dinner sponsorships will help offset the event's costs, so more dollars can be used for funding programs. Several sponsorship levels are available and are open to both companies and individuals.
