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

HipsterPartyThe 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 the Indie Gala on May 29 at 7pm.  The fund raising event has an affordable ticket price that allows young people 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 homeless population 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 Llorca coffee shop, and a taco bar from Stamford’s Tacos Guadlajara.

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, crafts and branded material.

In 2014, the Innovation Center held the Geeks and Nerds Gala and raised $1500 each 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.”
