We can't wait to see you on October 15! We'll give you a behind-the-scenes peek at our Learning Hub and that's just the beginning! You'll enjoy a not-to-be missed showcase of our talented Club kids, recollections from former Club Alumni Association President Bernie Garibaldi, plus:
ALISA BOWENS-MERCADO, Owner of New Haven-based Rhythm Brewing Co. (Connecticut’s first Black-owned brewery) and Alisa’s House of Salsa; radio host on New Haven’s WNHH Radio. Our super-fun and high-energy New Haven business leader will be our emcee (so expect a mini-salsa lesson!)
ANGELA CLEMMONS, professional singer who has worked with Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Vanessa Williams, Martin Short, Gregory Hines, Steely Dan, Roberta Flack, Smokey Robinson, and Cyndi Lauper. Angela has recorded a special version of Amy Grant's "Helping Hand"....just for us!
JESSE CAMPBELL, 2019 'Youth of the Year' Winner, Club member since age of 5, Hillhouse High School Student Council President, Political Science Major at UCONN, and an aspiring criminal defense attorney. Jesse will share some Club memories and how the Club helped shape who he is today.
This is a fundraiser, as our greatest wish is to keep our Learning Hub going during these challenging times and ideally offer the program at no cost to our families. Even a $10 donation will make a difference. But more importantly, this is a way for our community to celebrate together, when we must be apart.
The Club is here for New Haven kids and families, but we can't do our work without YOU. See you soon!
