Greenwich Historical Society Antiquarius Kick-Off
Greenwich, CTMay 2, 2017
Plans for Antiquarius 2017, the Greenwich Historical Society’s most important fundraiser, commenced officially on Tuesday, May 2, at an elegant breakfast at the home of board member Jessica Guff. Held each year in early December, Antiquarius features an Opening Night Preview Party, an antiques show, the Holiday Boutique and the Holiday House Tour, and is supported by over 100 dedicated volunteers.
The group enjoyed presentations by board chairman Davidde Strackbein, designer Kevin Isbel, lead sponsor Betteridge, and antiques show producer Frank Gaglio. Gaglio announced that the former Greenwich Winter Antiques Show will this year become The Greenwich Art, Jewelry and Antiques Show to better reflect the collecting interests of the Greenwich market.
Design chair, Keith Langham, will set the scene for the 2017 Opening Night Preview Party and at least two homes styled by Langham will be featured on the Holiday House Tour. Leadership for the week-long series of events includes: Board Liaisons Ashley Allan, Barbara MacDonald, Anne Ogilvy and Alease Fisher Tallman; Opening Night Preview Party Co-chairs Mimi Moulton and Susan Sleeper; Patron Solicitation Co-chairs Ashley Bruynes, Lucy Day and Deb Robinson; Holiday Boutique Co-chairs Lindsay Dalton and Amanda Lynch; Holiday House Tour Co-Chairs Susannah Heyworth and Catherine Tompkins; Transportation and Logistics Co-chairs Laurel Fine and Rachel Kelley; Media Chair Alicia Laing and Raffle Co-chairs Carrie Emery and Zoe Khayatt.
Tickets will go on sale in early October.CLICK AN IMAGE TO ENLARGE
