Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration

Monday, January 16 at 3pm


The Town of Ridgefield will present the 21st Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration honoring two amazing people – Daniela Sikora, head of The Ridgefield Chorale, as well as a special posthumous award presented to the family of Tom Belote. The afternoon will feature special performances by Broadway’s Daniel Levine and Bryan Perri as well as The Ridgefield Chorale, The Serendipity Chorale, Kimberly Wilson, Ridgefield A Better Chance and students from Keys, a non-profit organization that brings music education to underserved inner city children.

In addition to an extra special entertainment lineup, this year’s honorees are also extra special. Ridgefielder Daniela Sikora recently started the Being Human Being Kind campaign, in partnership with the Ridgefield School District and other community arts and social groups, in an effort to bring attention to the subject of bullying and offer programs to help victims and bring healing to our community.  Also this year, a special posthumous award will be presented to the family of Tom Belote in recognition of Tom’s tireless advocacy and activism on behalf of immigrants to America and to our community.

Because these remarkable individuals have made a tremendous impact on the Ridgefield community they are truly deserving of this honor.
