Over 100 Civitella Fellows, Director's Guests, Board Directors, Friends, and staff attended our Annual Party at the Grolier Club in New York City on Thursday, April 2. The evening celebrated the 2014 Fellows and Director's Guests. In addition to food, drink, and revelry, the party featured the premiere of the 2014 digital yearbook, remarks and performances from several 2014 Fellows and Director's Guests, and live music from local band Granted.
Our thanks to Tammy Rubel at the Grolier Club, Adriana Perovich and her staff, and L’albero dei Gelati of Brooklyn for their parts in bringing this event together.
