Annual Holiday Gala- Silent Auction Items Needed

posted October 21, 2013

Dear Friends,

If you can believe it, our Annual Holiday Gala and Silent Auction is just around the corner. With all of the great feedback from last year’s event, we will once again be celebrating at the beautiful Beekman Arms on Saturday, December 14th.

As a not-for-profit 501 (c) 3, the support of our community and membership is essential to our success. At this time we would like to ask you to help make our silent auction the best ever by donating a special item or service for our event. In so doing, you take an active part in preserving our founder Deborah Dows’ legacy of sharing a love and appreciation of our horses and our land. However, to leave more time to simply enjoy each other’s company, we will be scaling down our silent auction and are looking for just a few very special items to offer. If you have something you wish to contribute, please contact Sophia in the office at or at (845) 876-4862.  As always, all donations are tax deductible and you will receive a gift acknowledgment, acknowledgment in the program and not to mention our heartfelt gratitude.

We would also like to take this time to invite you to attend our Holiday Gala, or at least stop by and visit our beautiful, historic property; taking a moment to breathe in the spirit and sense of community that make Southlands such a special and unforgettable place to so many people.


We know it will be another unforgettable evening and we cannot wait to celebrate with you all.

We thank you in advance for your generous consideration.

The Gala Committee
