North Shore Land Alliance Wine Auction Fall Fete 2019 Journal


2019 “Into the Wild” Wine Auction Fall Fête Celebrating Protected Habitat We held our 16th annual Wine Auction Fall Fête on Saturday, October 5 at Groton Farm in Old Westbury. Over 400 guests were in attendance, many of whom wore bold animal prints and floral patterns as a tribute to the theme of the evening: “Into the Wild.” This year the Land Alliance celebrated over 1,200 acres of protected habitat, the natural home of plants and animals. “Protecting habitat is more important than ever,” said Lisa Ott, Land Alliance President & CEO. Since 1970, there has been a 60 percent decline of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish globally according to the World Wildlife Fund’s 2018 Living Planet Report. Habitat loss poses the greatest threat to all species. “By protecting open space we are helping preserve the habitat and biodiversity found on the North Shore of Long Island,” said Ott. Groton Farm is a 108-acre preserved estate owned by Land Alliance trustees Luis and Julie Rinaldini, who cofounded the Land Alliance 16 years ago along with several other community members. Guests entered the farm under a blanket of stars and bid on a robust selection of wines in the barn area before heading into a heated tent for a delicious dinner catered by Sterling Affair.


Beautiful flowers and plants, wood coasters, pine cones and mini gold-painted animals were among the décor that brought the theme of the evening full circle. Live and silent auction items included a trip to Napa Valley and a five-night stay in Deer Valley. The party continued into the early morning hours thanks to a DJ and dancefloor in an upstairs barn loft. “It’s so nice to see so many new faces this year alongside so many longtime supporters,” said Ott. “Preserving our community and planet is not something we can do alone. Your support means the world. Literally!”
