Produced by WFIT's General Manager, Terri Wright, Coastal Connection serves as your spotlight on the community. Each 5- min edition of Coastal Connection showcases a special event and/or not-for-profit organization in Brevard County, Florida.
The Dragon Festival will be a combination of a Renaissances Fair, Highland Games with a little Hogwarts for good measure. Taking place at Wickham Pavilion January 25th & 26th, the festival is to benefit the Save Dragon Point Foundation.
Promise In Brevard is a non-profit organization founded by Betsy & Luke Farmer. Their dream is of creating a place where young adults with special needs can live a life full of opportunities and freedom. The purchase of the Phase I parcel of land – 10.7 acres adjacent to the Hammock Landing shopping plaza in West Melbourne is just the first step toward making the goal a reality.
The Renee Foosaner Education Center offers a variety of art classes for adults, teens and children. Instruction is provided by local artists and teachers in the areas of painting, pottery, sculpture and much more. Evening and weekend classes are available.
