On Saturday, April 9th, the Center for Creative Education hosted our annual fundraiser, A Colorful Evening To Remember. With over 100 guests in attendance at our Northwood campus, the event included cocktails and dinner, as well as remarks from prominent members of the organization and a student performance. 

Guests arrived showing off colorful attire. During the cocktail hour, guests interacted with students from The Foundations School and looked at some of their recent art projects, which were on display in the Sallie and Berton Korman Art Gallery. CCE Board Chair James Meany kicked off dinner with welcoming remarks. 

“We are gathered tonight to celebrate CCE, an organization that is breaking the mold and transforming teaching and learning through the arts and creativity,” Meany said. “I have been fortunate to serve on this board for over four years, and in that time, I have watched CCE rise to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.” 

It’s safe to say that the highlight of the night was the student performance. Because the event celebrated CCE Board Member Eric Telchin’s recent children’s book, The Color Factory, a CCE teaching artist adapted the book into a play, which the third grade class from The Foundations School performed. The performance even included a surprise appearance from Mr. Telchin himself! 

A Colorful Evening To Remember was our last event at the Northwood campus. This summer, we will move into our new location at 2400 Metrocentre Boulevard. We are grateful to have closed this chapter with such a remarkable event, and we can’t wait to welcome guests to our new site soon.
