Bowls made and donated to BAAM by Woody Hughes.

BETHEL — BAAM’s Youth Open Stage & Fundraiser was a success, according to BAAM Coordinator Kate Webb. Seventy-one bowls made and donated by Woody Hughes were sold, totaling $2,640 and in addition, BAAM received a $2,500 sponsorship from Franklin Savings Bank and a $1,000 donation from a generous supporter, she said. These funds will go directly toward the 2023-2024 Youth Open Stage series.

Mainly Provisions Bethel donated delicious chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and vegan ice cream, as well as various toppings that were enjoyed by all.

“Don’t worry – you didn’t miss your chance to support Open Stage.,” noted Webb. “There are still 23 bowls left. Stop by The Gem at 48 Cross Street, Friday through Monday to get your own bowl, and we have ice cream left too.”

Seventeen young performers hit the stage for the first Open Stage of the school year and, according to Webb, were overjoyed to be back up there. Join BAAM on Thursday, October 12 for the next Youth Open Stage.
