Hailey told you about the benefit
for the New Amsterdam Market
this weekend, but if you can't make it, there's also an online auction
, with proceeds going to the market, that's full of really great items. There's a kayaking tour of Blue Point and clam bake with Chris Quartuccio of Blue Island Oyster Company, a home pig roast with with Jacob Dickson of Dickson's Farmstand Meats, and dinner for three with Alice Waters
, among other very appealing things.
The only drawback is that many of these very appealing things are quite expensive. Items with lower bids right now include a class on sustainability, certification programs and working conditions for coffee producers ($50), and a tour for four people at Stone Barns Center ($60).
