The Northwest Connecticut Arts Council will honor seven awardees at the 4th Annual CultureMAX Awards Event on Tuesday, November 14 from 5:30 – 8 pm at The Warner Theatre in Torrington, CT. The annual event was established to celebrate the inspiring works and contributions that various people, organizations and businesses have made, and to educate the region’s community about the positive forces that impact their cultural environment.
Fifty-two people rappelled 111 feet down Torrington Towers on Saturday, September 16, in support of the three partnering non-profits - Prime Time House, the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council, and the Northwest Connecticut Chamber Education Foundation. The event raised over $76,000 from the efforts of each of those who rappelled, or “Edged” for the three non-profit beneficiaries, which will share in the proceeds equally.
