CANCELLED: Patrons’ Party & Auction
The second night of the Trust’s two-night “Taste of the Vineyard” signature event.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Taste of the Vineyard Gourmet Stroll scheduled for Thursday, June 11th, the Patron’s Party & Auction scheduled for June 13th and Generations Picnic scheduled for July 10.
We are deeply grateful to all of the event sponsors, restaurants, caterers, beverage and other providers who partner with us to bring these festive celebrations to life each year. We would like to express our unending thanks to the volunteers who make these events run smoothly and who have spent the last nine months working behind the scenes. We look forward to bringing these teams together again for the 2021 event season.
We will miss having the chance to celebrate our amazing island community with those of you who have made the Taste your kickoff to each new summer season and with the families who have gathered to celebrate our island’s landmarks each July. Rest assured, these events will be back!
In lieu of participating in this event, we invite you to apply the funds you would have invested in a sponsorship, auction item or ticket purchase and make a contribution to our Campaign for 20 Landmarks in 2020.
Together, we will ensure that the 20 beloved properties in the Trust’s care will remain ‘Landmarks for Life.’
Saturday night’s Patrons’ Party and Auction is the second half of Vineyard Trust’s grand two-night “season opener” each June. Two days after the Gourmet Stroll, the tents are transformed to welcome our Patrons to an elegant and gala event. The Patrons’ Party & Auction is an upscale concept for an elegant evening out that will delight even the most discerning guests!
A delicious three course dinner will be offered by V. Jaime Hamlin & Sons.
Patrons will savor the passed hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails crafted by Island Cocktail Company as well as fine wine and spirits. The ubiquitous Vineyard Raw Bar serves icy cold shellfish from local waters, including oysters from Cottage City Oyster Farm.
Hunt for your favorite auction item among a wide array of experiences, consumables and one-of-a-kind items. The Live Auction will begin at 7:30 p.m.
