West Windsor Arts Council names volunteers of the year

Jennifer Connaughton (l) and Hetal Mistry (r).

West Windsor residents Hetal Mistry and Jennifer Connaughton have been named volunteers of the year for the West Windsor Arts Council. Almost 100 volunteers support the organization.

Connaughton and Mistry were instrumental in the success of the annual gala fundraiser that transformed the art center into an artistic jazzy nightclub. The fundraiser raised more than $17,000 for arts and education programs for youth and adults offered by the arts center. Connaughton is a fashion designer who leads the efforts to decorate the arts center for the annual gala and Mistry is an artist who volunteers on the exhibition committee.

“We are so grateful to them for lending us their talent and effort, for their warmth and enthusiasm, and for all they continue to do for the arts in our community,” said Aylin Green, executive director of the West Windsor Arts Council.
