Episcopal Churches Plan Soiree Benefit on May 9

Event slated for a home above the Hudson

Philipstown’s two Episcopal parishes, St. Philip’s in Garrison and St. Mary’s in Cold Spring, plan a public evening of “refreshments and riparian entertainments” as a benefit for their churches on Saturday, May 9, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Occurring at a private home overlooking the Hudson River, the 2015 Spring Soiree will include music from Mike McKee and Julie Heckert, accompanied by Paul Heckert, with a variety of solos and duets; and Bert Rechtschaffer performing jazz standards on the piano, with the possibility of “other musical visitations” involving local talent as well. The menu features appetizers, wine, beer and soda, served against the backdrop of Storm King Mountain over the Hudson River.

Tickets are available at a requested donation of $50 each, and reservations are required. Make reservations in advance at [email protected] or 718-545-1842. Information on the event location will be provided upon placement of reservation.
