-A A +A

Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies (VCET) and Hotel Vermont are thrilled to announce that April’s event, “The Arts”,  will feature Natalie Miller, co-founder of Vermont Comedy Club, and Bess O’Brien, founder of Kingdom County Productions.

The event will be held Monday, April 24th, 5:30-7pm in beautiful Juniper Hall
at Hotel Vermont, 41 Cherry Street in downtown Burlington, VT. All are
welcome, but tickets are limited so interested parties are encouraged to act
fast.

The cost of each event in the series is $15 per person, and 100% of proceeds
benefit a local charity or nonprofit which has not yet been announced.

The first three events in the series featured Sarah DeGray of Rev Indoor
Cycling, Jovial King of Urban Moonshine, Corinne Prevot of Skida, Sascha
Mayer and Christine Dodson of Mamava, Allison Hooper of Vermont Creamery, and
Jen Kimmich of The Alchemist. Thanks to RETN, the official media sponsor for
the series, all previous events are both available for viewing.

January’s “Wellness Working” event raised nearly $1,000 for Vermont
Adaptive Ski and Sports, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that empowers all athletes
with disabilities year-round throughout the State of Vermont. February’s
“Design & Manufacturing” event raised over $1,000 for the Boys & Girls
Club of Burlington, which “works to save and change the lives of children
and teens, especially those who need us most, by providing them with a safe,
positive and engaging environment that prepares them to achieve GREAT
FUTURES.” Finally, March’s “Food & Beverage” event raised over $1,000
for the Good Food Truck, which “works to provide good, healthy meals to
food-insecure Vermonters who aren’t currently getting the help they
need.”
