Our Annual Spring Barn Dinner Dance was held on May 7th at MC and Eric Roberts’ Silver Mountain Farm in North East.
Co-Chairs MC and Eric Roberts, Deban and Tom Flexner, and Jacqueline and Oakleigh Thorne enthusiastically welcomed guests to the gorgeous rural setting (and former picnic area for FDR) which was the perfect place to celebrate land conservation and raise much-needed funds for DLC’s programs. Over 300 friends and supporters shattered attendance records set in the first two years of the event. The evening included a delicious dinner from Stissing House, a live auction and paddle raise with guest auctioneer Bill Stahl of Sotheby’s, followed by dancing to the sounds of Harlem Line.
Our most heartfelt thanks to MC and Eric Roberts for generously opening their farm to us; to co-chairs MC and Eric, Deban and Tom Flexner and Jacqueline and Oakleigh Thorne for their hard work ensuring that we had a beautifully conceived and well-attended event; to our Auction Chair Hannah Buchan for obtaining amazing items that brought maximum bids; to our Auction donors for their generosity in offering items; to our auctioneer Bill Stahl for donating his time and talents to ensure that our auction was lively and successful; to our Underwriters for their overwhelming support; to our Auction winners and Paddle-Raisers and to all who attended the event – it is only with your support that we can continue to protect the land we all love and call home.
