HVA’s 30th Annual Auction for the Environment

Christine Baranski’s annual harvest-time tradition of hosting HVA’s Auction for the Environment will be a winter-time event, virtual, live and full of new treats on Sunday, February 21 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. There will also be a special pre-auction reception at 3:30 with Christine and Margo Martindale and friends for VIP Sponsor ticket-holders.

The Auction for the Environment is HVA’s only fundraiser of the year, and all proceeds will help keep water clean, conserve vital woodlands and meadows, restore and protect streams, and support recreation and education projects across the three-state Housatonic Watershed from the Berkshires and Harlem Valley through western Connecticut to Long Island Sound.

Auction items include unique offerings such as Family Story Time with Christine, a fabulous singing birthday zoom with Margo Martindale, a Q, A & C (cocktails!) zoom with Seth Meyers, and a personally curated Paris-Bordeaux adventure, along with tantalizing offerings from regional friends including Litchfield Distillery, Harney & Sons Fine Teas, Kent Wine & Spirits, as well as local shops and restaurants. Acclaimed auctioneer Sherry Truhlar’s energy and humor will shine from center stage. And lead auction business sponsors Harney & Sons Fine Teas, Litchfield Distillery and Aquarion Water Company are helping underwrite the festivities.
