On behalf of the Cranbury Arts Council (CAC), I write to request your support so that our mission, to promote
the arts in our community, may continue. Working towards this goal, we ask you to join us at our fundraising
event to be held on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 7:00 pm at the Cranbury Inn, Cranbury NJ. Your presence,
either in person or by your contribution, will provide the resources necessary to enrich Cranbury and the
surrounding communities with many outstanding visual, music and performing arts programs.
If you are not familiar with CAC’s work, the non-profit organization has hosted many events during the
16 years of its existence, including:
Youth Shelter Arts Program – An arts enrichment curriculum at the Middlesex County Youth Shelter,
a 24-hour live-in facility for at risk teens. The residents receive High school credit for their participation in
Poetry and Visual Arts Programs.
Art & Technology Camp – A four week summer day camp for grades K-9 that offers classes in theatre, dance,
music, fashion design, art, computer graphics and woodworking to name a few.
The Gourgaud Gallery – Located in Cranbury Town Hall. The Gallery hosts a new art exhibit every month
featuring local artists and art groups. The Gallery is also utilized for art workshops, comedy improv and
Art in the Park – A free monthly plein air program held from May to October open to all ages and experiences.
A professional artist is on hand to host and lend a critical eye. The program features an art exhibit in December
showcasing the artwork created from the monthly plein air sessions.
Awards – CAC provides a $100 award for two eighth grade students who have been selected by the Cranbury
School’s Music and Art teachers at the year end Awards Night. A $2000 award is given to a Princeton High
School graduating senior who resides in Cranbury. The student is selected by the CAC Awards Committee and
has demonstrated excellence in the Visual Arts, Music- Instrumental & Vocal, Theatre Arts, Dance or Poetry.
Cranstock – A free two day music festival featuring the varied music styles of many local groups.
Community Involvement – The CAC participates in Cranbury community events including Cranbury Day,
Drug Free Fair , Cranbury Lions Club Pancake Breakfast other events throughout the year.
The CAC needs your help to continue funding these outstanding programs. During the event, the CAC will
host a Silent Auction with many wonderful baskets to bid on with offerings for everyone, as well as original
framed artwork donated by local artists. If you cannot attend, your financial contribution or donation to the
Silent Auction will be greatly appreciated and recognized in the CAC Fundraiser Program. Please let us know
