Enjoy scrumptious hors d’oeuvres presented by Hudson’s diverse community chefs. Dance presentations will enlighten you throughout the Cocktail Gala. Be sure to bring some friends to enjoy the festivities.

We are honored to be greeted by the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Stilt walkers in the beautiful theater at Hudson Hall. Choreographers Dan Safer, Kyle Marshall, Marcus McGregor, Omonike Akinyemi, and Zorkie Nelson will present solo or group work in progress. Nelson’s group work will feature Kuumba Community Dancers.

This is the first time since 2019 that we are coming together for a Gala. It is joyous for us to have you celebrate with us. Thirty – one years working in the community is important. The Pandemic had a tremendous impact on all of us. As we move beyond it, we need you to assist us in creating future leaders, a monumental feat for each youth and their families.

Our goal to raise $20,000 will assist us with the winter and spring programs. Our Microcredential Course at Columbia Greene Community College earns three college credits upon completion. It gives young people a leg up on basic technologies that everyone needs to know stepping out into the world. Our Career Exploration experiences are gearing up for onsite visits. As the weather cools down, we are going inside community partner facilities offering Fitness and Literacy programs. Our commitment to integrating the arts for expression and understanding social injustices that remain in our world today is more relevant than ever.

We look forward to seeing you and are grateful for your financial support.
