June 6th Celebration & Benefit to Honor Dr. Schutte

Fri, May 5th, 2017

The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership Board of Directors & the Host Committee invite you to celebrate Thomas F. Schutte. After more than two decades as President of Pratt Institute, Dr. Schutte will retire this June.  Join us to honor his vision and service to our community on Tuesday, June 6th, 5:30pm-8pm.

Come enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres & entertainment.

All proceeds from ticket sales & silent auction will benefit Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project & the newly established Tess & Tom Schutte Community Arts & Culture Fund.  The Fund will bring public sculpture, cultural events, and exhibitions to the public spaces and storefronts of Myrtle Avenue, leveraging our neighborhood’s creative capital to create opportunities for local artists and increase access to art for community members. When you purchase tickets, you can also make a donation directly to this fund to honor and continue Dr. Schutte’s commitment to the arts in our community.
