Tickets are now available for Cupcakes & Cocktails, an event to support FWCS’ Study Connection after-school tutoring program. The event will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 9, on the Wells Street Bridge in downtown Fort Wayne. Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased online at

Those who attend will enjoy hors d’oeurves, cupcakes and signature cocktails from Calhoun Street Soups, Salads and Spirits, as well as live jazz entertainment by the Phil Scherger Trio. A brief ceremony will feature highlights from two Study Connection tutors detailing the significant impact that an investment of time, talent or treasure can have on the lives of children in Fort Wayne Community Schools.

Proceeds from the Cupcakes & Cocktails fundraiser will benefit FWCS Study Connection, an after-school tutoring program that matches students with employees and volunteers at area businesses and organizations through the community. Students and tutors meet for one hour once a week to provide consistent academic assistance and mentoring to students who may not otherwise receive it. For more information about Study Connection or the Cupcakes & Cocktails event, call 260-467-8810.
