The Evening for the Arts Gala benefits the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the educational enrichment and professional development of young artists and early career professionals, and created in the memory of Orange, CT, resident Jamie Alaine Hulley. All proceeds from the Gala go to support the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation, which sponsors scholarships, educational programs and grants in the arts throughout Connecticut, especially in the greater New Haven and Fairfield counties.
If you have children or grandchildren, nieces or nephews in school, chances are the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation has helped or will help to enrich their lives in some way.
The foundation’s presence has its greatest impact in the BOW elementary schools and the Amity Middle and High Schools. Students in all six elementary schools and the two Amity Middle Schools have benefitted from the foundation’s arts educational programs, including a start-up grant for the Spartan Players theater club on the Bethany campus. At Amity High School, the foundation sponsors a visiting artist series in studio art, music, and theatre; the Memory Project, Mugs for Mankind, storytelling SLAM, as well as Amity Creative Theatre’s fall play and spring musical.
In 2015, a total of nine Amity graduates were recipients of four-year partial college scholarships to study art or theatre.
