On Wednesday, April 20th, we held our 11th Annual Benefit where we honored long-time supporters Tony & Susan Gilroy, celebrated our work, and raised $1,100,000 to support our programs! We were fortunate to have Nini Davis-Escue, who has been active in Hudson Guild programs for about 20 years and who spoke at the first Hudson Guild Benefit, come back to give a spoken word performance at this year's event. A very special thanks to everyone who attended and donated. It is through your generosity and support of our mission that allows us to continue providing for the community we serve.
From April 15-24th, Hudson Guild Theatre Company held six sold out shows at full capacity of Jumbo!, A Circus and Dance Spectacular All About Romance! This musical, conceived and directed by Jim Furlong, featured choreography by Matthew Westerby, circus artists from the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, and music by Rogers and Hart. Following the performances, Hudson Guild K-8 participants participated in circus workshops led by the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus.
Garden Cleanup Project at Fulton
A big thank you to all the corporate volunteers from IAC who helped give the garden behind the Fulton Center a much-needed facelift on April 28th! Benches and planters were given a fresh coat of paint, dozens of caladium were potted and a fresh coat of mulch had the space looking spruced up and ready for the season!
The Vagina Monologues
Community and staff members put on empowering and meaningful performances of The Vagina Monologues in April. Ticket sales raised a total of $1,118 that will go to MADRE, an international women’s human rights organization!
Celebrating Diversity at Fulton Community Center
On April 21st, we held a Multicultural Festival where we celebrated the rich and diverse population of the Hudson Guild community through art, music, dance, and food!
