43rd Anniversary Dinner and Auction

Starr Ridge Banquet and Conference Center
38 Starr Ridge Road, Brewster, NY

Please join your friends and neighbors as they celebrate Putnam County Land Trust’s achievements in preserving open space and protecting sensitive habitats in Putnam County.

Our annual Benefit Dinner features an outstanding buffet, live music, a silent auction, and a live auction led by Ivan and Laura Cohen. Past auction donations have included weekend getaways, golf outings, antique furniture, wine baskets, unique jewelry, original art, lovely plants, gift certificates, and many items handcrafted just for this event.

Come see the displays and presentations about Land Trust properties and Putnam County’s many scenic areas that are right in your big backyard.

Special awards and recognitions will be presented to individuals who have made a difference for the environmental community by volunteering their time, skills and resources.

This year we are delighted to present the Blue Heron Award to Betsey Ryder whose work truly exemplifies what the Award represents. Betsey’s efforts to promote Farmland Protection in Putnam County, and her dedication to the heritage of Ryder Farm and the practice of sustainable stewardship of the land, have earned Betsey this recognition.

Please join us in honoring Betsey and our other awardees, and help support the critical work of the Putnam County Land Trust by attending the dinner. Simply complete and mail in the form that follows. Seating is limited so send in your reservations as soon as possible. Please also consider donating an item or service for the auctions and/or placing an ad in the dinner journal.
