Tomorrow’s History Fundraiser on October 19, 2018

WHAT:
Westport Historical Society (WHS), will be hosting Tomorrow’s History, an annual fall fundraiser, on Friday, October 19th, 2018. This event has become an anticipated night out in both Westport and the surrounding communities, and we would love you, your business or organization to be a part of it. Held at the classically modern Design Within Reach, in downtown Westport, guests will be entertained by Westport’s own, Warren Bloom and some of the best and youngest rockers in Fairfield County – School of Rock. Open bar, catering by MCK Gourmet will satisfy even the most particular palate. And last but not least, a curated silent & live auction that will bring out the crowd’s competitive spirit – especially when Westport Auction’s Travis Worrell is working the crowd! All proceeds will benefit WHS exhibits and educational programs

 

WHEN & WHERE:
Friday, October 19th, 2018 at Design Within Reach, Westport

This sell-out evening hosts 250 of the most influential and engaged Fairfield County residents. These are our most generous supporters who make a point of supporting businesses that support WHS.
