As it gets closer to the Undies Project’s “Cocktails & Comedy” fundraiser and the excitement is building tickets are close to sold out!
The Undies Project, launched by friends Lucy Langley and Laura Delaflor, longtime volunteers at Neighbor to Neighbor, falls under the purview of that non-profit. Last winter they launched their project sigh at “Mardis Bra” drive, inviting women to donate their gently used bras. The drive was a huge success.
The duo has arranged for local comédienne Jane Condon to perform at the event, which is set for Saturday, October 1, from 7:00-10:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church.
Recently Delaflor and Langley met up with Debra Ponzek at her Aux Delices location in Riverside to preview chef Ponzek’s signature martini, created specially for the fundraiser.
“The martini includes pomegranate blood orange juice, Cointreau, vodka and Pomegranate liquor,” Ponzek said, as she and the Undies Project moms sipped from non-alcoholic samples of the concoction on Thursday at Aux Délices.
Ticket sales have been brisk, and the organizers shared a heads-up that they are close to sold-out with less than a week to go.
There is an amazing silent auction line up, including a sail on an award winning schooner, accommodation for a long weekend in Vermont, a connoisseur’s wine gift basket, dinner in your home cooked by an acclaimed local chef, passes to a theme park in Florida, autographed sports memorabilia and a high-end, sought-after rejuvenating non-surgical treatment.
Tickets available online. There will be no tickets available at the door. Click here for tickets, which are $85 including one complimentary drink, Silent auction, cash bar, hors d’oeuvres AND desserts by Aux Délices, and music by pianist Douglas Kurz.
The fundraiser takes place in First Presbyterian Church’s Fellowship Hall, 1 West Putnam Ave, Greenwich 06830.
