ASAP! Celebrates Community

ASAP!’s spring fundraising gala, ASAP! Celebrates Community, will be held on Saturday, June 4 at The Frederick Gunn School in Washington.

Actor and arts advocate Tim Daly will host this festive evening of local food, cocktails, and dancing celebrating the ASAP! community, and honoring longtime board member Rob Parker. Rob’s passion for education and arts-infused learning has propelled ASAP! to where they are today.

ASAP! Celebrates Community host Tim Daly (Wings, The Sopranos, Superman: The Animated Series, Madam Secretary) is board president of the Creative Coalition, which tackles issues of direct importance to the arts and entertainment community, including First Amendment rights, public funding for the arts, and arts education in the public schools. He has also spoken at the White House in support of the arts in education. ASAP! is thrilled to have a passionate advocate speak about the impact that ASAP! has in the CT community, and the vital importance of arts practices and creative expression in the development of all young people.

Founded in 1999, ASAP! is a social profit institution recognized for its high-quality, portable, immersive learning experiences. What began as a small after school arts program has evolved into a wide-ranging education organization whose arts-infused programming is brought into schools and community spaces throughout northwest Connecticut. During his tenure, board member Rob Parker was instrumental in enabling ASAP! to broaden its reach to more schools in northwestern Connecticut, and helped establish Celebration of Young Photographers.

He says, “I’m very proud to have been part of ASAP!, whose mission—to inspire kids through creative hands-on learning—is a fundamental imperative for our community.” Rob’s powerful support has allowed ASAP! to expand its programs and continue delivering creative spaces for exploration, collaboration, and discovery vital to a journey of joyful learning.

Two ticket tiers for 5pm and 7:30pm are available. Ticket sales will support ASAP!’s mission to foster hands-on learning through the arts.
