• Wine Auction & Dinner, “Beyond Gatsby”, Rynwood Estate

    Dear Friends, Thank you to everyone who attended our Annual Wine Auction on Saturday evening. Despite the challenging weather, it was a truly beautiful evening with a sold-out crowd. For those of you who were unable to attend – or who attended but missed the opportunity to donate to our Tavern House Headquarters Appeal – we would love to extend the opportunity to contribute via the link below. As you may know, the Land Alliance is restoring a mid-1700’s building on the Humes Preserve as our first ever permanent headquarters! With construction and materials costs skyrocketing, we ask our friends and supporters to help us over the finish line. And we now have two ways to sweeten the deal! Every dollar donated to the Tavern House Fund (up to $50,000) will be matched by the Oliver R. Grace Charitable Foundation. And! every person who donates $100 or more to the Tavern House Fund will receive a chance to win an Americana Manhasset Shopping experience (see below for details) with a value of $2,500 dollars!  One (1) winner will be selected this Friday, October 7th. Thank you again for your amazing support.  We cannot do what we do without you! P.S. – please give us a few days to catalog and sort all Live, Silent and Wine auction winnings. We will be in touch with the winning individuals then.   Best, The North Shore Land Alliance Team Donate Today!
