May 4 gala, auction to benefit Hoosick Falls Armory
HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. — The Spring Sing, a gala and auction celebrating the Hoosick Falls Armory's 130 years of service to the community, will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, in the Armory's Perry Room.
The evening will feature hors d'oeuvres prepared by Sage Dining/Hoosac School, a cash bar for beer and wine, and complimentary flavored water. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on silent auction pieces, preview live auction items, and take in the vocal performances of Ric DiDonato, Shari Hand, Joe Shaw and David Sutton, accompanied by Richard Cherry.
Auctioneer Ron Seifert will then oversee the live bidding on the many big-ticket items to be offered. The evening will wind to a close over specialty desserts and more musical performances.

The live auction boasts more than a dozen lots, including a round-trip private airplane ride for two adults to Bar Harbor, Maine, or Provincetown, Massachusetts, provided by Charles Suss, with lunch included; a day at the Saratoga Race Course with seats for four in the clubhouse, a stable tour, and lunch courtesy of Contessa Racing; an original painting by artist Evan Wilson; a car detailing by DePaula Chevrolet; two 4-cubic-yard truckloads of mulch supplied by Suttonscapes and Granger Services; and more.
