Yaddo Summer Benefit Sponsors 2017

Everyone at Yaddo would like to thank our sponsors for their generous support of the 2017 Yaddo Summer Benefit, held recently on June 22, raising nearly $160,000 for the artists’ residency program.  The event was once again sold-out, with over 300 people in attendance “under the pines” at a site on the grounds rarely seen by the public.   Featured guest of honor was best-selling Yaddo author, Terry McMillan, who entertained the crowd with a lively conversation, including what her four Yaddo residencies meant to her personally and for her career, as well as a reading from her latest book, I Almost Forgot About You.  Traditionally the event is held in the Mansion, but our 124 year-old centerpiece is set to undergo a restoration.  It’s a two-year process that will stabilize the building and include some modest upgrades.  Everyone enjoyed the change of scenery and the weather was perfect.   A big thanks to all of our donors, hard-working committees, and the local businesses who donated food, flowers, and wine.  We are grateful for all of the community support that helps to make this annual event such a success!
