How Sweet: A Storytelling Event
January 27 • 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$25
The West Windsor Arts Council is inviting members of the community to share their true stories of how sweet life can be at a special event led by storyteller Maureen Connolly and hosted at the arts center on Friday, Jan. 27.
“How Sweet: A Storytelling Event” is a fundraiser for the arts council. The event will run from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.
A total of eight, five-minute stories will be told that evening, following a presentation and chocolate tasting by Kelly McCarron-Schwing of Cocoa Beau, featuring David Bradley Chocolates.
There is no pressure for anyone who attends to share a story. “This is a fun event, planned just ahead of Valentine’s Day, that promises to warm the heart,” said Maureen Connolly, a West Windsor Arts board member and professor at TCNJ who will be leading the event. “You’ll be entertained, hear stories from real life, enjoy delicious chocolate, and support the arts council.”
The first four people to register as storytellers will be guaranteed a spot in the “spotlight,” which will allow them to save seats for friends and family. After that, names are selected randomly from a bucket at the event.
“We are looking for your best stories about a time you experienced sweetness, be it emotional, taste or any other form you can think of. It could be your couple origin story, a tale of two desserts — anything you think might be sweet, even if it turned out to be salty!”
Every storyteller will get a prize. All participants will have a chance to purchase chocolates at the event, with 10% of the sales benefiting the arts center.
Registration is $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Seating is limited.
