Thank you to our corporate sponsors, individual sponsors, restaurants, and supporters who made Of Course! 2019 the best ever!

Of Course! 2019 celebrated all that is best about CCAE. 275 guests enjoyed a wonderful evening, experiencing two sampler mini-classes at CCAE, then parading behind a brass band to The Charles Hotel ballroom where the best restaurants, vintners, and brewers in Cambridge provided us with an extraordinary meal. The sense of community was palpable, and the conversation was continuous and lively.

Proceeds from Of Course! 2019 will help to fund our scholarship program, increase our outreach to nonprofits whose clients would not otherwise be able to take our classes, and assure that we can continue our public programming with series like The Blacksmith House Poetry Series and Conversations on the Edge. This successful fundraiser assures that we can continue to advance our mission—to explore, create, and grow.

Stay tuned for details about CCAE’s Of Course! to come!
