To the editor:
We are fortunate to have many individuals and local businesses that value the importance of arts in our community and that support the Darien Arts Center. The DAC, which is not subsidized by the town of Darien, solely depends on funding from its programs, donations, grants, and fundraising.
Recently, the DAC has been extremely fortunate to gain a new friend in Caffè Nero, which generously hosted a fun, artistic evening of live music, delicious food and their famous coffee drinks to benefit the Arts Center.
Additionally, Caffè Nero is exhibiting the paintings of recent DHS graduate and 2018 Ginny Wright Scholarship recipient, Nadia Czebiniak. Her paintings can be seen at Caffè Nero, 1075 Post Road, all week.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to Caffè Nero, their friendly, hardworking crew, and their wonderful manager, Scott Sergiano, for a memorable evening of Coffee and Culture.
