Hello! I’d like to introduce myself to you and hope we’ll be seeing each other in person soon. I’m Cindy Bender, new on staff at the Bonifas Art Center, and I’ll be working with events and funding. I’ve long been a fan and supporter of the BAC, and am elated to be working with the great staff and volunteers in our community’s award winning art center.
I’m originally from the south Detroit area, married Brad Bender after college at Grand Valley, had four children, Eli, Katie, Becky, and Sam, and have worked primarily in the education field. My interests are far-flung, and include theatre, gardening, reading, healthy cooking, and developing the artist within.
I look forward to working, playing, and creating good happenings with you at the Bonifas Arts Center!
