The Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation offers the most amazing opportunities to students throughout the area.

The Foundation is named for the late Jamie Hulley, the daughter of Judy Primavera and Fred Hulley, an Amity grad who loved to create. she was a singer, dancer, actress, artist, and all around wonderful happy young woman.

Her parents keep her memory alive by offering scholarships and grant money to others who share her enthusiasm for music, the theater and many other artistic mediums.

The money to fund the foundation is provided by donations and the annual Arts Gala. The COVID pandemic hurt everyone in some way, and the foundation suffered last year when the Gala couldn’t take place due to health concerns.

But thanks to the science that brought us COVID Vaccines, and a better understanding of what preventive measures can be taken to keep everyone safe, the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation event is back!

This year’s An Afternoon for the Arts featuring Carole’s Kings, an all male Carole King Review featuring the music of “Beautiful” — “Locomotion,” “I Feel The Earth Move,” “So Far Away,” “One Fine Day,” “You’ve Got A Friend,” and so much more.

The fun family day will take place on Sunday, Nov. 7 at The Brady Center for the Performing Arts, Amity High School, 25 Newton Road, Woodbridge.

Doors open at 1 p.m. with a Lite Reception and Raffle Preview. The Show begins at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $45 each and can be purchased by clicking HERE 
or click on the AD in the Right Column of this site.
Your ticket purchase allows the foundation to continue to provide enrichment classes for young artists in all genres – music, dance, visual arts and theater. All proceeds will be dedicated to their educational programs, scholarships, and community projects throughout New Haven and Fairfield Counties.
