The event benefits the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the educational enrichment and professional development of young artists and early career professionals. It was founded to celebrate the life of Jamie Alaine Hulley. All proceeds from the Gala are dedicated to scholarships, educational programs and community project sponsorships throughout Connecticut, especially in the greater New Haven and Fairfield counties.  Since the foundation’s creation in 2002, over $1 million has been awarded, impacting the lives of thousands of area youth each year.

The Gala also showcases the talents of performers involved in the foundation's programs at Square Foot Theatre in Wallingford, CT, Amity High School’s Creative Theatre, Black Rock Theater in Fairfield, CT, and Center Stage Theatre in Shelton, CT.
