Pelham Art Center Announces the
Grow Gala Spring Fundraiser

Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce that its annual Spring fundraiser, the Grow Gala, will take place on Friday, May 19. All proceeds from the event directly support Pelham Art Center’s operations, scholarships, youth and adult education, and public programs. The evening of fine dining, dancing and celebration will take place from 7:30-midnight at VIP Country Club in New Rochelle.


This year’s co-chairs are Nandini Anandu, Jennifer Hawks Bland and Jay Anderson, all of whom are members of the PAC’s Board of Directors. Gala committee members include Sona Davidian, Nancy Mazzei, Emily Sharrock, Michele Westrick, Jaime Wright, Courtney Reagan, and Estee Cross.


“I am very excited to co-chair the 2023 Pelham Art Center Grow Gala event with Jennifer and Nandini,” said Jay Anderson, who is also the Chair of the PAC Board of Directors. “This annual event is a cornerstone in our strategy to fund student scholarships, key community programs and art events, and to enable outstanding and unique education opportunities for youth and adults throughout lower Westchester county. We are grateful to our sponsors and donors, and I am personally looking forward to a fun event that celebrates the growth of art and the PAC.”


Featuring music from DJ Stephen Byfield, the dress code for the evening is “Festive Artful Attire—think green gold, foliage, and floral.”


Auction highlights include six nights at an exquisite home in Utah; a sailing excursion on the Long Island Sound aboard the Camelot; Courtney Reagan’s bespoke design services; fine art from local artist Beth Wall; and exclusive packages from Thrive Studio and Chef Jon Wallace.


“The Grow Gala is vital to raising money to support Pelham Art Center. This is an exceptional year for programming at PAC, and community support for our programs, operations, outreach and scholarship programs is what makes it all possible,” Executive Director Charlotte Mouquin said. “Art will help you grow as an individual, and supporting this gala will sustain and strengthen PAC to grow to the next level.”
