The Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) will be celebrating its 40th anniversary with a benefit gala on May 2. The black-tie event will be at the Rainbow Room at the top of the Rockefeller Center in New York City.

The event will also honor three individuals who have a lasting impact on the flooring industry: Howard Brodsky, co-founder, chairman and CEO, CCA Global Partners; Jeanne Matson, retiring president and CEO, Starnet; and Dana Teague, vice president, design group at Informa Markets.

“The gala will celebrate what we have accomplished together, while also helping to ensure the future success of FCIF,” said Charlie Dilks, chairman of the FCIF and CPO at CCA Global Partners. “In 2020, we are looking to reach a $1 million in revenue to help families in need. Please join us in this momentous occasion.”

According to the FCIF, representatives from major players in the floor covering industry will join to celebrate 40 successful years for the vital organization that has helped thousands of employees and retirees from the floor covering industry. FCIF’s grant program helps families cope with catastrophic illnesses and life-altering injuries by providing grants for basic needs such as medical care, housing and food assistance.

“The FCIF gala has the power to unite flooring manufacturers, retailers, distributers, suppliers, and installers all under one roof for a magical evening,” said Scott Humphrey, vice chairman of FCIF and CEO of the World Floor Covering Association. “FCIF provides the opportunity to come together on common ground to benefit those in our industry who find themselves in need.”
