To the Editor:

On Friday, Dec. 2, we celebrated the season with a magical Winter Warming Party at Ambler Farm. Guests kicked off our annual Greens Sale over cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres, mixing with friends and spectacular holiday arrangements through our silent auction.

We would like to thank our event sponsors:  Atlantic Mortgage, Servco Oil and Gregory and Adams, and fabulous catering by Craft 14 Kitchen + Bar featuring Bookmark Wine.

We would also like to thank the following retail businesses and organizations for their generous donations:  Blue Star Bazaar, Chou Chou, Dermage Spa, Earth Gardens, Ema Whitaker Photography, Jet Blue, Lemon Dahlia, Local Soul, Nod Hill Soaps, Open House, Rockwell Framing, Sheridan Interiors, Signature Style, Stewart Flowers, Sweet Pierre’s, The Salon Lea Lauren, Village Market Floral Department, Wilton Dry Goods and Wilton Jewelers.

We would like to express our appreciation to an amazing team of volunteers who created and donated the gorgeous centerpieces:  Pam DeStefano, Jen Elia, Suzanne Knutson, Diane Kuczo, Allison McHugh, Kristy Snyder, Lana Taubin and Diane Wilson. A warm thank you to our event donors: the Coffeys, the Dineens, the DiRoccos, the Gioffres, the Higginses, the Kahals, the Leungs, and the McDermotts. And a special thank you to Beth Culnane, Buffy Goodwin and Erin Woolard who spent countless hours creating the bulk of the gorgeous centerpieces for the silent auction.

Last but not least, a special thanks to the event chair, Lillian Cooke, whose talent, dedication and creativity led to an enchanting evening.

A final thanks to everyone who attended the Winter Warming Party and made it such a beautiful event. Proceeds will support the Farm’s ongoing educational and agricultural programs, as well as the restoration of the historic Raymond-Ambler Farmhouse.

Happy holidays and hope to see you at the Farm soon!
