The Ridgefield Arts Council will host a guest bartending night at Gallo Ristorante Thursday, March 21, from 6-9 p.m.

The event will raise money for the council’s Ridgefield Arts Scholarship. Amy Casey, Chris Sorgie and Paul Gervais from the council will be pouring drinks. Gallo will generously donate all bar tips, 10% of the bar bills and 10% of the restaurant bills (please mention Ridgefield Arts Council).

The council is raffling off a charcoal portrait opportunity graciously donated by Martha Talburt. The winner may choose the subject of the portrait, which is valued at $400. The Council will also raffle off the last remaining (and highly coveted) Ridgefield 300th Anniversary Plate.

The Ridgefield Arts Council is an IRS tax-exempt 501c(3) organization, and donations to the scholarship fund may be made

The mission of the Ridgefield Arts Council is to inform, entertain, and inspire those who appreciate and create art in all its genres. The RAC generates attention for and collaboration between members of Ridgefield’s vibrant arts community.
