The Fine Arts Foundation Debutante Ball is the culmination of a full calendar of activities and special events for the debs and their parents.
The mission of Fine Arts Foundation is to enrich life in Colorado by supporting the arts. “We accomplish our mission of supporting the arts through grants that are awarded on an annual basis from the net proceeds of FAF’s fundraising events and programs – the Debutante Ball, the Annual Campaign Programs and the Citizen of the Arts Jubilee,” said current FAF President Caroline Simpson of the all- volunteer nonprofit.
