I generally ignore events that have a price tag; it’s not just because I’m cheap, but because there are so many awesome things happening that are free. Well, someone has to pay the bill, and often it’s the Greater Hartford Arts Council absorbing part of the cost. This Thursday, you can throw $5 their way if you’ve been appreciating what they’ve been helping to provide us with — First Thursday (some venues/events are free, others have a fee), Black-Eyed and Blues Fest, Grand Band Slam, and the Festival of Light, to name a few.
They’ve announced a Dance Party fundraiser on Facebook:

5forArtsIf you’re reading this, you must value the arts in Greater Hartford…the theater, music, films, festivals, and exhibitions that make our community vibrant. But good art requires good support. Free events and low-cost tickets are only possible with broad-based community investment. That’s where YOU come in.
The Greater Hartford Arts Council is hosting a one-time, two-week, mini-campaign called 5forArts, to help fill the gap in this year’s United Arts Campaign, so that we don’t have to cut grants to 20 key arts and heritage organizations. 100% of your donations will go directly to our grantees. Our goal is to raise $100,000 by July 24.
Why yes, Christ Church Cathedral is located at 45 Church Street. See the Facebook event listing for more information or to contact those directly involved in planning this dance.
