Education Programming Fund

The second annual White Party on August 3 was a great success, with 220 guests in attendance to support the Education Programming Fund:

  • co-curricular programs for school visits (K-12)
  • original STEAM-based nature programs for children
  • custom programs for families with special needs
  • expanded after-school classes for pre-K through middle school
  • expanded adult nature classes, including overnight survival courses

This event was graciously sponsored by OurHarvest.

Our thanks to Post Wines & Spirits, Bedell Cellars, Jamesport Vineyards, Lenz Winery, Paumanok Vineyards, and Spring Brook Farm for donating outstanding wines for the event.

And heartfelt thanks to the Sands Point Preserve Conservancy’s Events Committee: Georgia DeYoung (Chair), Janet Effman, Amrit Sethi, Olivia Shandora, Martha Theodos, and White Party Chair Bonnie Zarabi. We are already starting to make plans for the White Party 2018!
