FCIF Raises $250K at 40th Anniversary Gala

More than 200 leaders in the flooring industry recently gathered to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF), at Rockefeller Plaza’s Rainbow Room in New York City. The Rainbow Room’s iconic rotating hardwood dance floor, inlaid with stars, has been graced by presidents, dignitaries and even Frank Sinatra.

Along with raising money for the foundation, guests honored the lifetime accomplishments of three industry leaders: Howard Brodsky, co-founder, chairman and CEO of CCA Global Partners; Jeanne Matson, Starnet’s retired president and CEO; and Dana Teague, vice president of Informa Markets.

FCIF Executive Director Andrea Blackbourn noted, “The 40th Anniversary Gala, along with our annual donations, are a true testament to the caring power of the floor covering industry. I would also like to extend a special thank you to Roger Marcus who planned and led the event. It was a unique evening celebrating the legacy of philanthropy and leadership in flooring.”

FCIF provides direct assistance to applicants who are facing a medical situation—their own or one affecting a household member—that could render them unable to work and earn income to support their needs. To qualify, recipients must have at least five years of service to the flooring community and demonstrate financial need. Grants can be used for medical care—everything from testing and prescriptions to hospitalization and medical equipment—or to pay for basic necessities such as food, shelter and utilities.
