Washington, CT - Kenneth Handal and Mary Francina Golden hosted a special fundraising event to benefit The Devereux Glenholme Center for the Arts Campaign. On Friday, October 16, a group of over 20 Glenholme families, friends, and staff from the tri-state area gathered to enjoy an enchanting evening filled with fabulous foods and cocktails that underlined an elegant evening of breathtaking performances.

The evening’s highlight featured Toby Appel, a world-renowned violinist, professor at Juilliard and a Glenholme parent. Mr. Appel was accompanied by three of his students from The Juilliard School for a private concert featuring music composed by Felix Mendelssohn, Maurice Ravel and George Gershwin. The evening’s program was a sought after auction item at the school last year, where a bidding frenzy ultimately ended in the hands of long-time supporters of the school, Kenneth and Mary Francina. They generously transformed this into another benefit for Glenholme’s Center for the Arts.

Before the evening concluded, The Center for the Arts Campaign received over $5,000 in new contributions. Along with fundraising, the evening provided an inviting setting for parents, particularly those of recently enrolled students, to get to know one another. Many parents expressed their gratitude toward The Glenholme School for their exceptional program offerings and events such as these which support the school and benefit the students. As Kenneth Handal eloquently expressed, “We love Glenholme, and we think the faculty and staff are wonderful partners in education for our children. Glenholme has made a tremendous difference in our family’s life.”
