Tooting our horn: CFWS members to exhibit art

We were honored to be invited to a special networking event, by our friends at the Winter Park Health & Wellbeing Center.

Thank you to all who volunteered!   Marcela M., Leslie R., Richelle S., Charlie C,, Susan G., Diane D., and Teresa C.  Whew!!! We will take photos and do a recap after the event for all to enjoy.

Sadly, this event is not open to the public. 

Diana Silvey, VP Programming for Center for Health & Wellbeing,  contacted me to see if 6 CFWS artists would like to display their artwork to showcase our organization to a statewide philanthropic network. The name of the organization is the Florida Philanthropic Network.  Because we now have a relationship with the Wellbeing Center, we were the first group she thought of.

These are non-profits networking with other non-profits, so you never know where a connection will lead. We would be getting a statewide exposure. 

We would display for 2 hours during a cocktail reception.  They have asked for 6 pieces of art. So, either 6 artists or if we have less than 6 then each artist can display more than 1 piece.

There may be an honorarium to the society for our participation, details to be work out.

They may provide the easels; we need to talk to the organizer… Amy.

Date is February 17th… at the JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek Resort off of I-4 and Epcot blvd.

Time is 6-8 pm…. Set up at around 5pm.

Dress would be nice… business casual.

We can ask about bringing business cards or the framed CFWS logo to display. (Amy)

The contact from the FPN went to our website and saw that we are holding our annual show there, and was impressed to see our connection to the Wellbeing Center!

Diana needs to know our answer by Friday, January 14, or sooner.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

thank you, Teresa Chin
