Meet Ruby Dee in New Ro tonight

Actress Ruby Dee will headline a benefit for the  New Rochelle Council of the Arts tonight. The longtime New Rochelle resident was nominated for an Academy Award last year for her role in the film American Gangster and is a legend for her civil rights activism.tjndc5-5ec6u5eh8g214ipg574c_original.jpg

The benefit is a part of Clay Fest — a series of events all across the county celebrating the art medium. I got word that the benefit will also feature a clay pot cuisine, which I have no idea what that is but it sounds scrum-diddily-umptious.

The benefit starts at 6 p.m. tonight at MacMenamin’s Grill and Cheff Works at 115 Cedar Street. To purchase tickets call the council at 914-235-9027.

I can’t go but if you do, e-mail me pics at aali@lohud.com and we’ll feature them on Suburbarazzi!
