Success at Green Street's Feast for the Senses

We want to let you know about the success of the Green Street Arts Center’s silent auction. At A Feast For The Senses last Thursday, Green Street raised over $23,000 for its After School Arts and Science Program and its scholarship fund! The magical evening was filled with conversation, laughter, live music and salsa lessons, food from around the world, and over 175 unique items and experiences for guests to bid on.

All of the support you have demonstrated means so much to our students. This past year, 98% of all our students receive scholarship awards.

Green Street Also runs classes for adults on everything from sound recording to screen writing to hip-hop dance. You can still register! A full catalog and description of class is available at our website.

As guests entered Green Street they were greeted by the sounds of Wesleyan students Will Monson and Matt Bernstein playing saxophone and bass guitar. Throughout the evening participants enjoyed performances by hip hop troupe ThoroEnergy, a Carnatic Trio, John Bergeron playing keyboard, The Remainders rocking out on guitars, The Adam Kubota Band playing jazz music, and Jocelyn Pleasant and Friends on African drums.

Popular items from our auction included an instant wine cellar, handcrafted jewelry and XX, tickets to the Blue Man Group, Hartford Stage and other theatre and entertainment tickets, a ride to school on a fire truck, wine tastings across the state, framed photos and artwork, and family fun events.
