James Ivory Hosts The 2017 Columbia-Greene Garden Party

Amy Krzanik reports from Claverack. The Alliance for Positive Health’s annual Columbia–Greene Garden Party is always a well-attended event and the cause is one that many hold close to their hearts. An added draw is that the APH (formerly the AIDS Council of Northeastern New York) holds the fundraiser at a different, magical property each year. This year, more than 400 guests were able to tour the home and grounds of famed film director James Ivory on Saturday, Sept. 2. Simons Catering created fanciful hors d’oeuvres, Kelly Mittleman & Friends played their hearts out, and the silent auction, another of the event’s big draws, featured hand-chosen pieces of art, furniture, fashion, personal care packages, dinners and overnight stays.
