Hollywood Stars and Olympic Athletes Walk The Red Carpet At The Rose Gala  

Last weekend, Saturday April 9th, Hollywood stars, Olympic athletes and politicians were guests for The Rose Gala, the first of the inaugural Gala in Manchester, Connecticut.

The Rose Gala was created to raise awareness for homelessness in Manchester, Connecticut.

The Gala took place at The Clerestory (Historic Events & Banquets), an event space specializing in weddings and more, with a capacity of 500 people. The event space is a nationally listed historic site and is the largest LGBTQ+ owned event space in the state of Connecticut.

The Rose Gala benefitted and supported the Manchester based non-profit organization MACC Charities. MACC Charities helps countless families and individuals experiencing emergencies with basic needs including access to food and clothing. MACC’s community kitchen serves everything from ready hot meals to an emergency food pantry. 

The event was organized by publicist to Hollywood stars, Jane Owen, with her company Jane Owen Public Relations (JOPR) and Drew Angelo of Onyx Elite. JOPR opened up a new  division of its company in West Hartford earlier this year and is on track to be the number one name in Connecticut events. 

Guests were welcomed to the event by Getty images who took photos of the red carpet upon arrival.

US Olympian Lindsey Jacobellis arrived on the red carpet accompanied by stylist, Veronica Apsan. Jacobellis recently took home the gold medal for snowboarding at this year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing, China.

Flying in from Los Angeles was ‘Yellowstone’ and ‘Teen Wolf’ star Ian Bohen.

Also in attendance were food critic Daym Drops, host of Netflix’s series ‘Fresh, Fried & Crispy’, actress Carolyn Paine and Emmy nominated film and TV producer and director Fernando Ferro (The Birthday Cake).

The co-host for The Rose Gala was ‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘Mortal Kombat’ actor, Michael Jai White. 

Politicians from all over Connecticut were in attendance including Mayor of West Hartford Shari Cantor, Mayor of Manchester Jay Moran and Mayor of Bloomfield Danielle Wong.

The State Treasurer for the state of Connecticut Shawn Wooden was also a guest for the evening. 

The Ballet Theater Company of West Hartford opened the evening’s activities where they performed an excerpt from their upcoming show Aladdin, taking place later this month on April 23rd and 24th at The Bushnell in Hartford

Next, Onyx Elite’s Drew Angelo officially opened the evening’s speeches with acknowledging  guests and his partners on the event, JOPR’s Jane Owen, and introduced Shannon Baldassario  the Assistant Executive Director of MACC Charities.

Baldassrio spoke of MACC Charities the importance of building relationships within its community to break cycles of poverty. Baldassrio said “I would like to express my deepest gratitude to everyone for their love and support shown in honor of MACC Charities and all the work we do to support our community.”

JOPR founder Jane Owen described how following her family’s recent move from Hollywood to West Hartford, the enormous welcoming they have received in Connecticut and explained her intention to become a staple in Connecticut’s PR and events industry. JOPR currently works across NYC, LA, Dubai and London. 

Co-host for the evening star of ‘Mortal Kombat’ Michael Jai White then took to the stage. Jai White has founded JAIGANTIC STUDIOS, a film studio based in Connecticut. The film studio aims to rival any studio on the east coast. The studio is leading the growth of the film industry in Connecticut, bringing about many new jobs and income to Connecticut. 

Food for the evening was catered by Bistro on Main, MACC’s social service enterprise restaurant whose mission remains “to care for our neighbors and neighborhood through service to others. Z Catering provided two full open bars to guests for the evening. 

The Gala also had a silent auction to raise funds for MACC Charities’ multiple building projects, for housing needs and access to housing.

With the success of the event, raising awareness for MACC Charities mission, and the number of guests in attendance, the second edition of The Rose Gala next year has big things on the horizon.
