Join Us for A Pre-Mardi Gras Special Event

Shoreline Arts Alliance & Asiye’s Boutique Partnering for a Special Holiday Red Carpet Event in Madison, CT

Asiye’s Boutique, known for its noticeably unique style, will partner with Shoreline Arts Alliance on Thursday, December 15 to present a special Red Carpet Night just in time for the holidays. The event will begin at 5pm with an elegant cocktail reception of sparkling prosecco, provided by Doug MacLeod of Mionetto, USA, paired with delicious and plentiful heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music and photo ops on the Red Carpet. At 7pm guests will be invited to the second floor showroom for a performance by Madison residents Erin Christine, American Idol contestant season 12 and 13, and vocalist Katherine Dickson.

Between their performances Asiye’s unique style will be showcased during a fashion show with 20 local high school students walking the runway in glamorous, accessorized formal attire. Think New Year’s Eve, Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day, Weddings and Proms! Her inventory of women’s fashion includes clothing, jewelry, handbags and accessories for all occasions.

Tickets are $15 for the evening with every guest receiving a $15 gift certificate for the boutique. Gift certificates are redeemable through the end of 2016. Tickets may be purchased in person at Asiye’s Boutique, 757 Boston Post Road, Madison during store hours or by phone at 203-245-1200. VISA, MasterCard, American Express and personal checks made out to Asiye’s Boutique are accepted. 

As a Shoreline business woman Asiye is committed to the community and this Red Carpet Night is one way in which she gives back. Proceeds from this event will support the programs and services of Shoreline Arts Alliance.
During this evening celebration to kick-off the holiday season Shoreline Arts Alliance will also be taking reservations for their major fundraising event in February – the 5th Annual Mardi Gras Gala – taking place on February 11 at Water’s Edge Resort and Spa in Westbrook. Tickets are $145 per person and if purchased at the December 15 Red Carpet Night Asiye will include an additional $45 gift certificate per ticket to help patrons get just the right look to ‘stroll Bourbon Street.’ In fact, she will stay open until 9pm on December 15 should you want to choose your Mardi Gras attire.

The Red Carpet Night is sure to be a glamorous, festive and delicious evening with all proceeds supporting the arts in our community and Shoreline Arts Alliance’s mission to Educate, Encourage, Enrich and Engage our residents and visitors through arts, culture, heritage and humanities.

Shoreline Arts Alliance, Youth Involvement in Nonprofit Management
(Grades 9 - 12)

How can I get involved in Shoreline Arts Alliance (SAA)?

Shoreline Arts Alliance welcomes high school students to get involved in our organization as Interns, Junior Ambassadors and Junior Board Members:

  • SAA Interns typically work 2 - 3 days a week over the summer on a project that interests them. Some of our interns have a true passion for the arts, others are interested in learning more about the inner workings of a nonprofit or want to explore a specific career interest, like marketing and communication, web or graphic design to name a few. As an intern, you will work closely with the CEO of Shoreline Arts Alliance to define and implement your project. Although this position is unpaid we believe that the experience is a good investment of your time.

  • Junior Ambassadors are individualswho serve as representatives of SAA in the community, educating others about SAA, it's mission and goals as well as assist as volunteers for Shoreline Arts Alliance with various initiatives and events over the course of the year. Junior Ambassadors may be called upon wo welcome attendees and hand out programs at events such as Shakespeare on the Shoreline, escort guests needing assistance to and from their seats, assist with set-up at fundraising events, attend SAA programs and/or events in an effort to educate our community on the organization. The responsibilities of a Junior Ambassador can be designed to fit your schedule.

  • Junior Board Members are selected by SAA's CEO based on their involvement as Interns of Junior Ambassadors. In supporting the mission of SAA, Junior Board Members are tasked with: 1) educating their peers and the community about SAA, its programs and initiatives; 2) building membership; 3) volunteering at various SAA initiatives such as Shakepseare on the Shoreline, Mardi Gras, Sip'n Stroll, etc.; 4) recruiting Junior Ambassadors; 5) providing input as it relates to programming and SAA initiatives; 6) chairing and/or serving on one or more of SAA's task forces; and 7) reporting to the Board of Directors' liaison.

How do I become an SAA Intern, Junior Ambassador, or Junior Board Member?

If you are interested in learning more about our internships or ambassadors, please email either a resume or list of your current interests and activites to We will then contact you to set-up an informational meeting for you to learn about SAA and for us to learn more about you. We accept applicants from December to early June for Interns. However, Junior Ambassadors can join throughout the hear. Junior Borad Members are selected from our Interns and Junior Ambassadors.

How long do I serve as an Intern, Ambassador, or Junior Board Member?

We hope that you stay involved throughout your high school experience but we ask that you re-evaluate your commitment on a yearly basis. If the SAA Board Liaison determines that you have not fulfilled your obligations as an Intern, Ambassador, or Junior Board Member or if your situation changes and you recognize your inability to fulfill your dutieds, we ask that you step down.

What's in it for me?

Our hope is that you enjoy your experience educating, encouraging, enriching and engaging the Shoreline community in the arts and also hone your skills, explore your interests and serve your community. We valued your time and will do our best to make your involvement with SAA a fulfilling experience. Your experience can be included in your college and/or job applications and during your high school years, your time served in this capacity can be documented for community service requirements.
