2016 Gala

Winnakee Land Trust hosted its annual gala on Saturday June 4th, at the Astor Tea House in Rhinebeck. The gorgeous setting, wonderful weather, and sold-out attendance all contributed to a very successful event. Over 250 guests enjoyed an elegant evening of cocktails, live music by Bill’s Toupee, photography by Irving Solero, a silent auction, and a sit-down dinner catered by The Artist’s Palate.

Winnakee Land Trust relies on the generosity of donors to support its vital mission to protect and gala dancingpreserve open space and important agricultural lands in northern Dutchess County. The annual gala is Winnakee’s largest fundraiser of the year and it’s success is crucial to our conservation endeavors. We thank all of our gala guests, auction donors, and sponsors for another successful event and are already looking forward to next year!
