NORTH SALEM, N.Y. -- The Board of Directors of the Westchester Land Trust (WLT) and the 2014 Benefit Committee will host, “An Evening Under the Stars” on Old Salem Farm on Saturday, June 14.
The event is expected to welcome more than 350 attendees.
Guests can expect a dinner catered by Tastefully Yours, as well as dancing, and a silent and live auction.
WLT will honor former WLT Executive Director Candace M. Schafer.
"We are proud to honor Candace for years of dedication to the Westchester Land Trust and her ongoing commitment to permanently protect environmentally valuable land throughout the region," said Jonathan Wiesner, chairman of the WLT's Board of Directors.
He went on to note that Schafer had led the nationally accredited land conservation organization through its 25th anniversary last year and successfully forged public and private partnerships to protect and enhance the natural resources in the Westchester and Eastern Putnam County communities.
Schafer recently stepped down as executive director and has joined the WLT's Board of Directors.
