The New Suffolk Waterfront Fund is bringing back its biggest fundraiser of the year after a one-year hiatus.
Moonlight and Country returns to the New Suffolk waterfront on Saturday, July 28. The evening features music, a special live auction and a country-themed dinner prepared by Southold catering company Grace & Grit. Expect a comfort food menu of Southern barbecue, corn bread, slaw and pie.
“It always ends up being a very homey type of event,” said NSWF board member Linda Auriemma. “It is a lot of friends from New Suffolk, and of course new people, which we’re always happy to have.” (more…)
