New Urban Arts to host The Birthday Bash fundraiser

On Friday, April 12, 2019, from 7pm to 10pm, New Urban Arts (NUA) will host THE BIRTHDAY BASH at their studio at 705 Westminster Street.  The annual fundraising event marks the 22nd anniversary of NUA’s afterschool and summer arts programs for Providence public high school students. Tickets are $35 and are available both online and at the door. All sales benefit NUA’s programming.

Celebrating two decades of arts mentorship, creative practice, and community building, THE BIRTHDAY BASH features a silent art auction and raffle, treats from your fave local restaurants, and an open bar courtesy of Bottles Fine Wine and The East End. Cash, check, credit, and venmo are all accepted. Please note that this event is strictly 21-plus.

The evening’s program also includes an award ceremony honoring three members of the New Urban Arts community who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to our youth.

“Our vital work empowering young people’s creativity depends on the support of our community,” says NUA Executive Director Daniel Schleifer. “Whether you’re a longtime supporter or you’re hearing of New Urban Arts for the first time, we hope to see you there.”
