West Hartford's Cookin' Up Something New in 2021

For a second year in a row we are unable to hold our traditional fundraiser, West Hartford's Cookin'!  This fun evening of friends, food and fundraising has been a tradition since 2002!  And while we can't gather together in person, we still must forge ahead with our fundraising.  And so, this year, we invite you to participate in West Hartford's Cookin' Up Something New.

By Thursday April 15, support West Hartford's Cookin' Up Something New and for your participation at the $100 level or more you will receive a special curated gift bag as a THANK YOU!  One special gift bag will include over $200 in gift cards to local restaurants.  Your participation will directly support:

  • $20,000 award to the Department of Equity Advancement to support equity and anti-racism education.
  • $32,837 award to 28 teacher grants for a special grant cycle to provide support during these difficult times.
