Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters’ first Culture, Arts and Society Today (CAST) party fundraiser generated more than $100,000 for student scholarships. The event featured Brazilian entertainment and performances by the college’s theater, music and dance faculty and students. ‘Through the generosity of donors, we are able to support students who may otherwise not be able to attend college, including some that are the first in their families to go to college,’ said Michael Horswell, the college’s dean.
