2016 AIA Florida Raises Over $3,500 for "Architecture in Education"
DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – Florida Architects raised $3,835 for Architecture in Education at this year’s AIA Florida 2016 Annual Convention and Trade Show. The annual social responsibility raffle was sponsored by Crawford-Tracey Corporation who has sponsored the raffle since its inception in 2011.
The money was raised by raffling off a 2016 Vespa scooter, with the proceeds from the raffle going to Architecture in Education. David Stone, an architect with Phil Kean Design Group in Winter Park, FL was the lucky winner.
Architecture in Education is a Florida education program for 4th and 5th graders by the Florida Foundation for Architecture. The program is based on STE[A]M: SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ARCHITECTURE, MATHEMATICS, and is a dynamic eight to ten-week curriculum-enrichment program that matches professional architects with classroom teachers. The program sharpens a student’s math, social studies, art, and other core academics with real-life, project-based learning. For more information on AIE visit www.aiafla.org.
“We are very pleased with the amount of money we were able to raise for Architecture in Education,” says Ray Crawford, President of Crawford-Tracey. “Crawford-Tracey is proud to have this fund raising partnership with the state AIA chapter and plans to continue its support for years to come.”
