Come support The Coalition to Save Hempstead Harbor, and Save the Great South Bay and help raise funds for a clean harbor and a clean bay! On October 16th between 6-9, at Soleil New York, an 1858 Firehouse / custom furniture store in the heart of Roslyn, will be hosting a get-together and silent auction featuring live music, local food and drink, and the opportunity to purchase locally made custom furniture and art.
Soleil produces gorgeous one-of-a-kind pieces that grace many fine homes throughout Long Island and New York:
Included in the silent auction will be plantings from Save The Great South Bay‘s “Bay Friendly Yards” program!

Together with The Coalition To Save Hempstead Harbor, our mission is to help heal our waters while making our yards and communities more beautiful. Here below is a sample of the sort of offerings we provide:
