Benefits the RJ Kinsella Magnet School of Performing Arts.
Why attend? Two reasons.
One is for the fun!
Participate in (or simply observe) a silent and live auction of a variety of items.
Sample local brews and an assortment of wines.
Enjoy hors d'oeuvres supplied by ON20 Restaurant.
Delight in musical performances by the students.
Socialize with other guests, school faculty and staff, parents of children who attend the school, and others.
There will be guest and alumni speakers, and two emcees -- Patrick Langevin of The Bushnell, and Kara Fenn of Leadership Greater Hartford.
A second reason to attend is for the satisfaction you will get from supporting the children who attend the School.
KAI currently has no paid staff. All raised funds are used carefully and wisely.
As a magnet school, Kinsella School attracts students from over 30 cities and towns. It actually attracts more applicants than there are seats, necessitating the use of a lottery system to help manage admissions.

The School's value proposition is its use of arts integration to enhance learning. This instructional concept is working amazingly well.
