Support the Greenwich Historical Society
As a nonprofit institution, the Greenwich Historical Society relies on the
generosity of friends and supporters to meet the costs of educational, cultural
and preservation contributions to the community. Members and friends have the
opportunity to provide direct to the Historical Society in a number of ways,
including attending our fundraising special events that take place throughout
the year. Your support is crucial to the vitality of the Historical
Society and to all those who love Greenwich and wish to see its history come
alive for generations to come.

The Greenwich Historical Society joined the Bruce Museum to host an opening
night benefit preview of Antiques & Art Avant-Garde Greenwich on
Friday, December 14, 2012. The evening offered an opportunity to preview the
show and to shop in a relaxed and festive setting, with cocktails and hors
d'oeuvres catered by Abigail Kirsch. Proceeds from the preview party equally
benefited the Greenwich Historical Society and the Bruce Museum.
Organized by Frank Gaglio Inc., the event highlighted the wares of 45
dealers and combined classic antiques, fine art, jewelry and architectural
objects with contemporary life-style and modern design genres. The show was
open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, December 15 and 16, 2012 at the
Eastern Greenwich Civic Center, and included celebrity appearances, including a
panel discussion by guest Americana expert, author and television host Leigh
Keno as well as a lecture on interior design with Alexa Hampton, president and
featured designer of Mark Hampton, LLC and a “What’s Modern Now” display by
designer Lynne Scalo. A gourmet show café was offered by
Versailles. For more details on the show and related

No sooner had cochairs Catherine Tompkins and Carrie Wallack put out the
word on securing the appearance of AD100 Designer Jeffrey Bilhuber for a lunch
and lecture at the Belle Haven Club when the phones began to ring for tickets.
A huge and heartfelt thank you to these talented and
tireless ladies and to all our table hosts for orchestrating a fabulous sellout
program from start to finish.
In attendance were 200 lucky guests who were captivated by Bilhuber's
insider advice and willingness to share tips and resources. At lunch, guests
were wowed by spectacular table settings tricked out in true Bilhuber style,
and they ate up every word of the post-luncheon Q&A, where individual
design questions were answered by the master himself.
Our deep appreciation to Jeffrey Bilhuber, to media sponsor Connecticut
Cottages & Gardens and to business supporters Artistic Upholstery,
Dovecote, Equinox, Frederic Fekkai, Gabrielle's, Greenwich Orchids, Hoagland's,
John Robshaw, The Well Appointed Home, Juliska, Lily Pulitzer, Quadrille,
Richards, Ralph Lauren, Saks and Tory Burch. Without you all, this stellar
event would not have been possible.
