WASHINGTON — The Housatonic Valley Association’s annual Auction for Our Environment will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, November 10 at the Washington Primary School, 11 School St.
Proceeds fund HVA’s water and land conservation work across the Housatonic Valley.
Christine Baranski, HVA board member and star of the CBS series The Good Fight and the film “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” chairs the Benefit Auction Committee.
Auctioneer CK Swett will take center stage at 3 p.m., keeping bidders on their toes with trademark energy, humor and warmth.
Joining Ms. Baranski on the committee are co-chairs Linda Allard, Rebecca Neary and Alexandra Peters as well as Jack and Pam Baker, John Favreau, Pat Lahoud, Margo Martindale, Diane Meier, Seth and Alexi Meyers, Anne Swift and Lee Lord.
The town’s own Chris Zaima will bring design expertise to the setting this year and, along with Debby Bennett of Kent Greenhouse and Gardens, will create just the right ambiance for the music of the Sean Sheridan Band, delectable edibles from Executive Cuisine, cocktails, wine and exuberant bidding.
The auction lineup of donations from friends throughout the valley includes vacation and weekend getaways, theater and sporting event tickets, dining, home furnishings, antiques, artwork, outdoor gear and unique opportunities.
The auction has sold out in recent years. Those interested may reserve seats by calling 860-672-6678 or purchase tickets at hvatoday.org.
Proceeds help conserve riverfront land and woodland corridors, clean up pollution, protect drinking water, save wildlife habitat, allow children to enjoy and learn about the natural world and more in the Housatonic River Valley.
