Orienta Beach Club, March 30, 2023
The annual event has something for everyone. Held at one of the area’s prestigious waterfront clubs, it was arrayed with bargains for auction — discount cards for Larchmont’s favorite restaurants and tempting gift baskets of items curated for special pursuits.
Attendees go home with their winnings, while all the funds received, down to the last dollar, are given to local nonprofits. This year 21 community organizations shared the wealth, along with the crucial World Central Kitchen feeding Ukraine.
Chair Janet Day reports $12,425 was collected that day, always the only fundraiser on the Club’s annual calendar. Attorney Manny Rawlings and Michele Glick delivered news of our stem alliance education and of the neighboring charity that supplies much more than its name — Hope.
