2019 should prove to be a year of exciting challenges including fundraising. “We wanted to find a new way to raise funds for the Sheffield Island Lighthouse,” said Mike Reilly, president of the Norwalk Seaport Association. The non-profit association is responsible for the preservation of the lighthouse. “We needed something that would resonate with the unique and special nature of our historic building. We heard that the Music on the Hill bell choirs were fans of the lighthouse and collaborating with them on this magical event was just what we were looking for” Reilly added.
Ring in the New Year will take place at the Unitarian Church in Westport on Sat. Jan. 19th from 7-9 pm and includes champagne, beer, wine and delicious shoreline appetizers provided by the award-winning Simply Delicious caterers of Norwalk. “Holding our event at the architecturally award-winning Unitarian Church is the perfect backdrop for the bell choirs and the church’s glass walls that look out on the sparkling woods, makes this a very special evening and a not to miss event” noted Reilly
Tickets for this tax-deductible event are $100 each is limited and only available online at www.Seaport.org or by calling 203-838-9444. “A fresh new year is always filled with hope & promise. We wanted to create an event that captures that magic,” said Reilly.
