Please join us for a unique event to benefit the Horace Greeley Scholarship Fund. The William Louis-Dreyfus Foundation in Mount Kisco, NY, is opening its art gallery for a special showing to benefit the Horace Greeley Scholarship Fund on Sunday, September 25th from 4 to 6 pm. The event will include a gallery viewing and a wine and cheese reception. Tickets are $100, and are limited.

The Foundation’s collection is made up of pieces by the self-taught and contemporary artists including James Castle, Rackstraw Downes, Red Grooms, Stanley Lewis, Sangram Majumdar, Claes Oldenburg, Nellie Mae Rowe, E.M. Saniga, Beatrice Scaccia, Judith Scott, Sam Szafran, Bill Taylor and Purvis Young among many others. The installation of works is beautifully arranged, and there are wonderful surprises around every corner.
During the exhibition, we will also be screening the award-winning documentary, Generosity of Eye, directed by Brad Hall. Narrated by actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the film is the inspirational story how her father’s passions for art, justice, and education connect in a single act of generosity.

We hope you can join us! Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone who might appreciate viewing this incredible collection, for a very worthy cause. The Horace Greeley Scholarship Fund gives grants to graduates of Horace Greeley High School to help cover the gap between the rising cost of college and the ability of a family to pay through family resources, loans, and other grants and scholarships. This year, the Fund awarded grants totaling $223,000 to 29 Greeley alums. Each year, we strive to meet more of the demonstrated need with your help.
