In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, American Floral Endowment has transformed our Annual Fundraising Dinner into a Virtual Mask-erade. Supporters of the Endowment are in a unique position this year to do more for the industry from the safety of their homes. The Endowment’s work is ongoing and vital to the continued growth and development of the floral industry as we adapt to this new normal.
This year, AFE committed to funding over $800,000 in research initiatives, educational grants, scholarships, and internships. We’ve been serving the floral community for 59 years with 44 years of our annual fundraising dinner and we won’t let the coronavirus break our streak.
See the Mask-erade!
Sponsors and attendees received event masks. Then they shared their mask-erade photos using #GivingtoGrow and tagged us.View the Photos
