March 23-24, 2018
An amazing 2 night event of talent. Join us Friday night for a variety show of talents by our very own DCG students and a dessert intermission. Then come back on Saturday for dinner and a show. There will be dinner and entertainment. Start in the gym for a meal and performances by our full bands and jazz bands. Then move into the auditorium to be wowed as our choirs (including show choirs) perform on stage. You don’t want to miss it!

A fun filled night of fundraising with friends and fitness. We walk, jog or run with our peers and community members for the Friends of Fine Arts. There will be glow in the dark shirts, glow in the dark accessories and plenty of smiles! Bring your friends and family members out and join in on the fun.
The GLOFA 5K Run/Walk began in 2016. This will be the third year Friends of Fine Arts hosts this event. GLOFA is a fundraiser for the Dallas Center – Grimes Friends of Fine Arts (FOFA).
Last year, over 292 people participated. This year we hope to be able to have 400 participants, providing for even more fun during the event and additional funding for our fine arts programs at DC-G community schools. This is a great non-competitive event for families.
This year the GLOFA 5K Run/Walk will take place on Friday, April 20, 2018. We will again offer 1 mile & 5K events at the Grimes Sports Complex at dusk. Participants registered by the deadline will receive a glow-in-the-dark T-shirt designed by a former DC-G art student.
Please take a look at your calendar and plan to join us again this year. For more information and event updates, ‘like’ the FOFA Facebook page and RSVP to the GLOFA 5K Run/Walk event!
If you have a child in the fine arts program, you are an important part of FOFA. DC-G Fine Arts opportunities supported through FOFA would not be possible without our generous and dedicated DC-G families.
