|Ann Naughton and Jennifer Oseth of the Debutante Ball present the FAC’s Sam Gappmayer with a generous check.|
We’re excited and grateful to share that the Fine Arts Center recently received a check for $26,000 from the Colorado Springs Debutante Ball Committee!!! This generous donation will be used to purchase new works of art for our Permanent Collection.
The Debutante Ball Committee first began contributing annually to the FAC’s Permanent Collection acquisition fund in 1967, and since then, have donated over half a million dollars! Their generosity has resulted in the purchase of many iconic FAC works, including those below.
