Fairfield Cultural Alliance hosting annual gala Nov. 14

Fairfield Cultural Alliance invites all culture lovers and creators to its annual Networking Gala at 7:15 p.m. Nov. 14 at ICON Gallery.

The event will feature live music from Fairfield?s homegrown talent Michael Dugan. Fresh from his opening for Twinsmith at the Arbor, this creative musician and his soulful voice are a local favorite.

This year?s Fairfield Cultural Alliance Cultural Trust Fund Grant recipients will speak about their upcoming projects, and Fairfield Mayor Ed Malloy will speak about the city?s support of the arts and the downtown Fairfield Cultural District.

The Fairfield Cultural Alliance Cultural Contribution Award will be presented to a group or individual who has made a significant contribution to Fairfield?s cultural community in 2017.

Network with others who create and support creative expression and share strategies and support over gourmet appetizer and dessert refreshments.
