Robert Sax, former Coral Shores High School Band Director

In my 15 years at Coral Shores High School, Dave Feder and the ICE Foundation donated thousands of dollars to my students and other visual and performing arts students. Whether a student needed art supplies, instrument repair, or support to follow their dreams, ICE was there to help.


In addition ICE donated generously to the marching band, concert band, theater, and visual arts programs. ICE also purchased needed equipment and upgrades for the school’s Performing Arts Center, and even set up a matching grant to purchase Coral Shores a high-end digital recording studio. This allowed students to create superior quality recordings for college submission. 

This one major purchase alone helped many students open the door to a better secondary arts education. I will always be grateful to the ICE Foundation and David Feder for their ongoing support of my program and the students of Monroe County. They have been a blessing to all performing and visual arts students and programs in the Florida Keys.”
