80s Rock Bliss


The Darien Depot Youth Center’s annual fundraiser was an 80’s-themed event on Saturday, March 25 at Woodway Country Club. In addition to food, drinks and a silent auction, there was also a dance and costume contest, and music from RUBIX CUBE, an 80’s tribute band, led by the male and female duo of Karma Chameleons. 

The silent auction featured a number of exciting items, including getaways at vacation homes, fitness classes, meals at restaurants, fun and exciting jewelry, tickets to sporting events, and a number of other one-of-a-kind experiences.

Founded in 1989, the Darien, CT-based Depot offers a connected and inclusive environment for local middle school and high school students, providing essential programming and leadership development through clubs, activities, and events. Housed in a historic local train station that was saved from demolition by The Depot’s founders, the organization’s mission is “Supporting the well-being of our youth by giving them opportunities to connect, grow, and give back.”
