Give Back, Get Together, Have a Blast

Tech, Startup and Independent Business Community to Support Fairfield County’s Homeless at Second Annual Gala at Stamford Innovation Center.

The sounds of music, fun and new connections will once again fill the halls of Stamford’s Old Town Hall as the Stamford Innovation Center hosts Indie Gala on May 29 at 7pm. The fund raising event has an affordable ticket price that allows young people (and the young at heart) to come together to have fun and raise money for a good cause.

The event, sponsored by IBM, Arccos Golf, digital marketing agency Beeby, Clark + Meyler, and top law firm Anderson Kill, will raise funds for Operation Hope, which supports the hungry and homeless of Fairfield County.

Billed as a “small batch charity shindig,” the Indie Gala will feature music from New Canaan’s Moses Brothers, custom cocktails from Mount Gay Rum, churros and chocolate from Stamford’s own bakery and coffee shop Lorca, and a taco bar from Stamford’s Tacos Guadalajara.

There will also be a pop-up shop where local artisans, vendors and non-profits, including Stamford-based Franklin Street Works and Bridgeport-based B-Hive, will be selling products and crafts.

In 2014, the Innovation Center held the Geeks and Nerds Gala and raised $3,000 for two charities: the CT Veterans Legal Center and Future5.

“The SIC team, our startups and coworkers get to work in the remarkable Old Town Hall, a 1906 Beaux-Arts building, older than Grand Central Station,” said Peter Propp, CMO for the Stamford Innovation Center. “So a few times a year we create events where we raise money for local charities and create connections among the many different types of people who make up the Fairfield County community. We love seeing people’s eyes light up when they come in the door and experience these remarkable spaces.”

We hope to see you there!
