They ensure the needs of the guests and artists are being addressed," said Beth Kigel, President and CEO of the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce which produces both the ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival and Art Fest by the Sea in Juno Beach. "We just could not stage these world-class events without our volunteers."
