Magic of May benefits nursing agency patients

Wilton’s Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County is planning The Magic of May benefit to be held Sunday, May 1 from 4:30 until 7:30, at the home of agency friend and supporter, Liz Fox, on Sasco Hill Road in Southport.  The event will raise funds to benefit the nonprofit home healthcare and hospice agency’s patients in need.

The festivities will include cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, live and silent auctions, a giving tree, the wizardry of celebrated magician, Bill Herz, the musical mojo of Chris Coogan at the keyboards — all with spectacular views of Southport Harbor and Long Island Sound.

The auction offerings include tickets to the hit Broadway musical, Hamilton, a week’s stay in a luxury home on Kiawah Island, four field-level tickets to a Mets game, tickets to the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, tickets to a Yankees/Red Sox game at Fenway, a week-long deluxe vacation at the sumptuous Grand Mayan resort, and more.  

The Bauer Foundation is a title sponsor of The Magic of May benefit as is Liz Fox. Other event sponsors to date include Janet and Peter Lebovitz, Louise B. Goodridge, Sara and Dave Hunt, and Ellen and Scott Lewis.  

Members of the volunteer benefit committee are Wilton residents Carol Bauer, Carol Boehly, Janice Hess, Judy Higby and Ellen Lewis, working with New Canaan residents Janet Lebovitz and Carlyn Tiefenthaler, Norwalk resident Dawn Jeffrey, and Weston resident Ken Edgar.

Corporate and individual sponsorship opportunities are still available. For tickets or more information, call 203-834-6341, ext. 305 or register online at
