Hilaria Thomas, Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin was on hand lending inspired support, when he took to the microphone. He has become a valued benefactor of Guild Hall by generously donating his money, time and talents to champion their artistic achievements.  After dinner the live auction was a huge success. The incomparable auctioneer Alexander Gilkes, co-founder of Paddle 8, raised Three Hundred Thousand dollars from nine donated lots. Dancing to Sly Blue closed out a very special evening for Guild Hall and the artistic community of East Hampton. PC
