Three hundred supporters turned out at The Capitol Theater in Port Chester on Saturday, May 4, 2024 for the Rye Arts Center spring fundraiser. Couple Kate and Paul Conn and couple Aida and Julian Koski received honors and Meera Agarwal received the inaugural Visionary Artists Award.

The second year of The Rye Arts Center’s Studio 51 themed Spring Benefit raised funds to support scholarship and outreach programs including Head Start, Dance for Parkinson’s and Senior Arts Immersion. Attendees from 12 to 92 years young enjoyed the 1970s Studio 54 themed event.

The group expects to announce total funds raised later this week.
