Thank you to our supporters!
Fifty Barrington Area Conservation Trust supporters gathered at the beautiful Barrington Hills Sanfilippo family polo field for the second annual Tartans for the Trust event on August 29, 2020. Once again, Mother Nature came through for BACT for a perfect evening after a hot summer. A small but mighty and passionate crowd gathered to support BACT live, and other supporters watched it live streamed to create a very successful event. Our donors really stepped up to support BACT during this crucial time.
BACT provided all amenities including Tartan masks generously made and donated by Chrissie Mena, beautiful tables with floral arrangements donated by Twisted Stem and a fully catered menu by Region Restaurant. Each table was set with its own bar to help with COVID protocols. Guests enjoyed a live and a silent auction with items from local area merchants including Long & Co Jewelers, the English Daisy, Twisted Stem, Clarke’s Bakery and Doering Landscape to name a few. The evening included a private tour of the lush fen proposed Sanfilippo easement, Scotch tastings, and a strolling bagpiper from the Shannon Rovers. Bryan Croll, president of BACT, Matt Vondra, vice president of BACT and Tartans chair, and James and Renata Sanfilippo each spoke briefly about BACT and its mission to preserve the Barrington area community’s rare and exceptional open spaces for current and future generations.
