Beginning in 2019, the Rizal Community Center, under the Filipino American Council of Greater Chicago, will host two main fundraising events, the Chrysanthemum Ball and the Game Changer Awards. All net proceeds from title sponsors, donations, and table and ticket contributions from these signature events will go to support the Rizal Community Center operations and FACC initiatives.
2019 marks the 45th anniversary of the FACC at Rizal Community Center! This inaugural event will celebrate community and will honor unsung heroes who are making a significant impact in our community through the arts, advocacy, social services, education, or business. Tribute awards will be bestowed to individuals, organizations, and movements that have inspired, enlightened, and shown true leadership in areas that reflect the FACC’s core pillars of cross-cultural dialogue, civic engagement, service, and education.
Save the Date for our 2019 Chrysanthemum Ball, October 19, 2019.
The Arts Game Changer Awards Gala will be a signature event honoring artists, musicians, writers, and performers who have made a significant contribution to the development of art, music, and culture in Chicago and who inspire a deeper empathy and understanding of the world through their work. In spring 2020, artists, musicians, dancers, writers, actors, and other notables from the arts and performance world, and FACC boards and patrons will gather to celebrate the arts in Chicago and honor these individuals.
