Called the "Roaring '20s" in some parts of the world, the French dubbed it "Les Années Folles," meaning, "Crazy Times." A hundred years later, as we emerge from our own wild times back into the missed company of good friends, family, and community, FAIS is hosting a golden night of giving and celebration at the historic Benson Hotel.
Put on your glitziest 1920s attire and join us as we step back in time to a vibrant era of burgeoning art, society, and culture to celebrate our community and school.
