From its inception in 1984 to present day, the AKFA has invested in the community of Venice. This year, proceeds from the 2009 festival will be awarded through grants of up to $5,000 each. Recipients will be recognized during this year’s Abbot Kinney Festival on Sunday, September 26, 2010, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Proceeds from the sales of sponsorships, exhibitor booths, event-run concessions, commemorative merchandise, and advertising help fund the AKFA Community Grants Program.

“The Abbot Kinney Festival is a celebration of life and beauty, and the AKFA is gratified to be able to invest the proceeds back into projects in the community, such as arts and education for youth, mural preservation, and school renovations, said Donna Humphrey, AKFA Board President. “We’re having fun and making a difference—that’s the spirit of Venice.”
