Actress Christine Baranski, currently a co-star in CBS's "The Good Wife”, will be joining other celebrities such as Anderson Cooper, Diane von Furstenberg, Seth Meyers, Mia Farrow, and Meryl Streep to co-chair this important fundraising event. These stars have homes in Litchfield and Berkshire Counties and are dedicated to the mission of the association.
As noted on their website, the Housatonic Valley Association, "a tri-state nonprofit citizen’s environmental group, works to conserve the natural character and environmental health of its communities by protecting and restoring the land and waters of the 2,000-square-mile Housatonic watershed from its source in the Pittsfield, Massachusetts area to Long Island Sound for this and future generations."
The auction will feature such items as a week’s stay for six people at a gated resort in the Dominican Republic; a vacation in a five-bedroom, 12th-century limestone village home with an extensive wine cellar in southwest France; a trip to a charming cottage in County Cork, Ireland; a $500 gift certificate from Manolo Blahnik USA; a bourbon tasting party for 25 people at the Litchfield Distillery; four tickets to see the last Connecticut performance of Garrison Keillor and the Prairie Home.
