Lisa Richter and Christina Dixcy Benefit Co-Chairs


“Dear Kim,

Thank you for your contribution of gorgeous terrarium centerpieces to Housatonic Valley Waldorf School’s 2013 Spring Benefit auction.  Every year, donations such as yours help HVWS grow!

Our 9th Annual Spring Benefit, held on May 17 at Le Chateau in South Salem, NY, was a tremendous success. We exceeded our financial goals, and over 130 attendees shared in a wonderful night.  Our guests were thrilled with the quality of items available in the silent and live auctions, the proceeds from which directly support the core of the HVWS financial aid program, as well as curriculum and program materials, and faculty training.

The success of the Spring Benefit is a collaborative effort, and would not be possible without the generosity of donors like you.  We appreciate the support of all who helped make this wonderful event possible!

Kind Regards,

Lisa Richter and Christina Dixcy, Benefit Co-Chairs”

“Kim, I love, love, love the two I bought from you today. I DID create a “safe place” for both, away from my cats and dog! I told you that I would “work it out.”  OMG, I love them so much! Thanks for giving me your business card! You help the environment with the planting and add beauty to everyone who buys your creations or has you create on their property. Thanks again, and again, and again! You made me very, very happy today! I love your work”

“Fantastic experience over all. Comments by neighbors upon completion of this first first stage were overwhelmingly positive. I can’t tell you how pleased we were with the finished project.”

“Working with Cider Mill Designs was great. Kim set up an appointment the day I called. We went thru her ideas for design and she was open to my opinions. She told me when she would start and she was true to her word!”

“We called Cider Mill Designs, no one else could figure out how to handle our space. I know Kim is an expert and our garden is proof.”
