Members of Friends of East County Arts, Inc.  raise money each year by  hosting fundraising events such as the December Holiday Tea, Blarney Bunco Party and special gala or fashion show events and through donations. The money raised enables Friends of East County Arts, Inc. to provide grants to schools, community organizations and programs that support and provide all forms of art in the greater East San Diego County.




Grant applications will be available in the Fall.  Grant recipients will be notified in November and will be acknowledged at the annual Holiday Tea in December.
