Fairy-themed event at Kismet raises funds after tragedy
Kismet at Caryn’s is holding a community fundraiser for the Condon children in its Secret Garden adjacent to the store at 72 Main St. June 14, 3 – 6 p.m., rain or shine. They will collect gift cards, money cards and cash donations, which can be dropped off at any time, to benefit three children after the recent untimely death of their mother in Cold Spring. Checks, made out to Anthony Verdile, can also be dropped off during the fundraiser.
Caryn Cannova, owner of Kismet and its garden, stressed that the event is not the result of her efforts but of the community as a whole. She stated that 100 percent of the proceeds will go directly to the children’s grandparents, who currently have custody of the children, and all gifts will be logged and counted by her and Doreen and Bob Ferris.
The fundraiser has a fairy theme for the children, and food will be provided by Christine and Peter Iserillo, formerly of Cold Spring Café, Hudson Hil’s and Silver Spoon. For more information, call Cannova at 845-265-4403 or the Ferrises at 845-265-4732.
