The Country School's Spring Gala will be an evening of camaraderie and community, food and drinks, plus live and silent auctions. Our mission is to build the Annual Fund to ensure the SS TCS sails steadily onward. We hope you will join the waterside festivities, gather for an evening of friendship, food and fun, and support the efforts with your presence and participation. Click the orange bar to order you tickets today. Bidding on auction items will open April 7.
Destinations: Where to Go and What to Expect
Libations with Litchfield (Masin Room) Arrive early to relax and sample spirits from award-winning Litchfield Distillery, Connecticut's newest micro-distillery, while overlooking the Mystic River. Light fare will be served. Tickets available now or at the door. Available 6:00-7:30 PM.
Wine Wall (Masin Room) Everyone’s a winner in this game of chance. Buy a ticket, pull a numbered bottle from the wall. Every bottle is worth at least as much as the $25 ticket price, but it doesn’t end there--once all bottles are pulled, a drawing will reveal which number wins the grand prize- a Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1989 Pauillac worth $1100! Tickets on sale at the door. Available 6:30-10:30 PM
Cocktails with the Crew (Thompson Lobby) Enjoy cocktails and nibbles while perusing the silent auction items and visiting with fellow friends of TCS. Available 6:30-7:30 PM
