Faces of Philanthropy Gala & Auction 2020
Please join The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA) for the Fourth Annual Faces of Philanthropy Gala and Auction. This small socially-distant gala will celebrate the museum’s members, donors, and everyone who shares FMoPA’s mission of preserving, exhibiting, and promoting photographic arts in Tampa Bay. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for a cocktail hour, followed by a seated dinner, an awards ceremony, live entertainment, and a live auction.
Guests who choose the Virtual Experience option will enjoy exclusive live streaming from the main event, an opportunity to bid on the auction items, and a gift bag with delicious treats delivered right to their doorstep.
The Faces of Philanthropy 2020 auction will boast a variety of lots, including original photographic art, classes, workshops, unique services, and experiences. The highlight of the auction is a collection of underwater images taken by internationally-acclaimed National Geographic photographers. The dinner entertainment will include live music performances and video testimonials from artists, collectors, and museum donors. The annual Faces of Philanthropy Awards will celebrate foundations, companies, and individuals that have been instrumental to the museum’s operations in 2020. The award for the “Foundation Support of 2020” will be presented to the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay. President and CEO Marlene Spalten will receive the award on behalf of the organization.
