RSO All Hearts Holiday Auction Supports Local Musicians, Encourages Shopping Local!

Announcing RSO All Hearts Holiday Auction!

Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors, fundraising committee, and staff are excited to present an online holiday auction to benefit RSO musicians who have been unable to perform with the orchestra since the global pandemic struck last spring. 

The auction will feature a unique and curated selection of gifts from local merchants and service providers that are sure to delight an array of family and friends.  From a night out on the town, to baubles, books, and toys, the auction will bring gift shopping right to your living room! 

“We are excited to raise funds to benefit musicians whose livelihoods have been so drastically affected by the Covid-19 pandemic,” says RSO Executive Director Laurie Kenagy. “The performing arts will be the last segment to recover from this crisis, particularly symphony orchestras, and we want to help our musicians.  We also want to recognize local businesses and nonprofits who donate to the auction, in an effort to promote shopping local for the holidays.”    

Prior to the online event, the fundraising committee will highlight community business partners whose products and services are featured in the auction. This will be done via social media and on the RSO website. “We are going to have a lot of fun with this, while raising money for a very deserving cause and getting a head start on our local holiday shopping,” says committee member and social media consultant Kate Fitzpatrick.  

The online auction will be live December 3rd - December 7th, and will be linked to the RSO website at https://ridgefieldsymphony.org/auction. Supporters will be able to bid on items, take advantage of the “Buy It Now” option, or simply make a cash donation.

Another great way to support the RSO All Hearts fundraiser is by attending the Pete Wikul Jazz Band Concert to be held on October 4th at 4:00 PM under a tent at The Ridgefield Playhouse. The concert is presented by the RSO and sponsored by First Light Home Care. Renowned jazz musicians come together to perform this special concert with the proceeds going to support the fundraiser. Join us for this fabulous and fun event! Tickets are only $20 and available at https://ridgefieldsymphony.org/jazz
