FCFA & the Amazing Raise – September 19 & 20, 2012

Dear CFA Alumni and current CFA students and families,

The Friends of Center of the Arts (FCFA) is participating for the first time in Richmond’s “The Amazing Raise” – Richmond’s 36-hour online giving challenge!  Since the FCFA is now a non-profit organization, we are now eligible to participate in this event and we need your help!!

We know that so many of you have already given to the CFA and FCFA, so we are asking you to spread the word about “The Amazing Raise” to your friends and families – encourage others to donate to the FCFA!  Every donation helps, so please help us by encouraging your friends, families, colleagues to participate!

CFA Alumni – we can really use your help!  Please consider making a donation to help the FCFA!  And, please let everyone know about the CFA program and what FCFA does to help our CFA students and teachers!  Encourage your friends, families, college roommates, employers, your Facebook Friends (you get the idea!) to consider making a donation to the FCFA.  We can’t do this without you!
