Thank you to The Ridgewood News for wonderful coverage of the inaugural Ridgewood Arts Foundation Honors on Jan. 29 at Fish Restaurant. We also give wholehearted thanks to the art-loving public who attended and/or donated to our new foundation. We congratulate our 2017 honorees, Parlance Chamber Concerts and Art of Motion, two iconic Ridgewood performing arts organizations. Additionally, we recognize that our event would not have been the success it was without contribution from our participating sponsors: Hartshorn Portraiture; Ridgewood Press Printing and Copying; artist, Sasha Robinson, from Master Art Studio of Ridgewood; and Fish Restaurant. The mission of the Ridgewood Arts Foundation, a 501c3 organization, is to provide financial support to existing and new performing and fine arts initiatives in Ridgewood. Our hope is to create a substantial scholarship program for Ridgewood art students as well. To achieve our goals, we welcome donations to the Ridgewood Arts Foundation via our website (www.ridgewoodartsfoundation.org) or by mail to Ridgewood Arts Foundation, P.O. Box 183, Ridgewood, NJ 07451. Thank you, again, and cheers to the arts in Ridgewood!
The writer is Trustee and VP of Communications for the Ridgewood Arts Foundation.
