NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The New Canaan Society for the Arts had a successful Spring Gala, Monaco Grand Prix last month, thanks to the generous support of the community.

The gala, featuring the exhibition "Va Va Vroom, Art of the Vehicle," raised $33,000, which will be used to operate the Carriage Barn Arts Center and to provide exhibitions and programming for the public. 

Guests were greeted with champagne and hors d’oeuvres while being serenaded by the Marie Michele, the lead singer for French jazz quintet, Oh La La. 

Co-chairs Karla Rimmer and Serena Gillespie attribute the successful evening to their extended help, including committee chairs Catharine Sturgess, Amy Reid and Laura McDaniel; committee members Mary Beaudry, Nicole Dillon, Sarah Hering, Sheryl Kilkenny, Samantha King, Amy Reid and Julie Reeves; Charles Crookenden, for serving as the Master of Ceremonies; and co-directors of the Carriage Barn Arts Center, Arianne Faber Kolb and Eleanor Flatow.
