Yesterday’s 17th Annual GVSHP Benefit Village House Tour and reception was a smashing success.
One of our highest grossing benefits ever, we had incredible weather, spectacular houses, a glorious reception with food and beverages at Ristorante Rafele.
We are also incredibly grateful for the wine donated by Frederick Wildman and Sons, incredible support from local businesses who feed our more than 150 volunteers and donated gifts to the generous homeowners who opened their homes for our tour, a perfect ticket pick up site provided by the Salmagundi Club, and lovely programs and benefit materials designed by Studio Usher.
And of course none of this would have been possible without the hard work of the entire GVSHP Benefit Committee, including chairs Leslie Mason and Cassie Glover, Vice-Chair Kyung Choi Bordes, and volunteer coordinator Kate Bostock-Shefferman; our more than 150 volunteers; and the incredible GVSHP staff who worked so hard on this event, including tour coordinator Drew Durniak, Programs Director Ted Mineau, Director of Preservation and Research Amanda Davis, Administrative Assistant Meaghan Collins, Director of Operations Sam Moskowitz, Special Projects and East Village Director Karen Loew, and past Director of Operations Sheryl Woodruff.
Special thanks also go to all of the GVSHP trustees and other volunteers who captained houses and kept everything running so smoothly throughout the day.
And most of all, thanks go to everyone who bought tickets and supported the tour, especially our very generous sponsors and benefactors. You make GVSHP’s education, documentation, and advocacy work possible, and help us to preserve, protect, and promote the special history and built environment of Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo.
