We are beyond excited to announce that this year’s Fall Country Luncheon will be held at the new Jesse and Gayle Bontecou Conservation Preserve!


Co-Chairs Helen Cook, Rebecca Seaman and Olivia van Melle Kamp look forward to celebrating this amazing gift and honoring Gayle and the late Jesse Bontecou for their donation and protection of the 1,250-acre Preserve.

This family friendly fall favorite frequently sells out, so get your tickets early. For tickets or additional information please contact our office.
