On Thursday, July 21st, actress Jennifer Sklias-Gahan and Depeche Mode lead singer/guitarist David Gahan will join forces with the Church Street School for Music and Art (CSSMA) for the first annual Art. Music. Party! at The Montauket Hotel in Montauk.

The family-friendly Hamptons benefit will toast to the nonprofit art school, raise much needed funds and commemorate the organization's 26-years of offering music and art education for the New York City community and beyond.

"We are so grateful to have found Church Street School for Music and Art for our daughter! In a world where the commercial result is highly prioritized, many times at the cost of quality, it is crucial to have a school for the arts that understands that to find your artistic best you should explore through process, jump in, take risks (even if they might seem messy) and make mistakes- as this often ends up leading the way to our greatest moments and our greatest creative inspirations," said Jennifer Skliás-Gahan, CSSMA Parent & Art. Music. Party! Artist Co-Chair. "A place that keeps supporting you and feeding your confidence to keep reaching.... that's what Church Street School has given our daughter. It's such a privilege to support an organization that is so devoted to giving to our community with such a spirited heart!"

From 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., attendees will enjoy live music from Montauk-based groove/rock band, Jettykoon, as well as CSSMA students and special guests, food by Saltbox Restaurant, and a special collaboration between Jon Krasner and Danny Ye and Chef Nadia Ovalles, imaginative art projects for all ages, and also have the chance to leave with incredible raffle prizes like a guitar signed by Depeche Mode and the band's full vinyl catalogue, VIP tickets and a studio tour to Late Night with Seth Meyers, and much more.

Church Street School was founded in 1990 with the mission of providing individual experiences and nurturing personal discovery to support students' inspired thinking and confidence. The not-for-profit is the sole school for the arts located in Lower Manhattan, and they "strive to serve as community center for the neighborhood: a safe place where students, parents, children and neighbors share creative experiences, where kids play and grow together, where those with the challenge of disabilities find a place to shine." Church Street School's goal is to present reasonably priced, high caliber programming for everyone.

Tickets begin at $50.

The Montauket is located at 88 Firestone Road in Montauk. For more information, visit churchstreetschool.org.
