Gatsby and Daisy would have been highly impressed with the transformation of Greenwich Country Club into an art deco wonderland at the Greenwich Hospital gala. It was a roaring good time for the 400 guests who came together to honor the Mitchell family for their contributions to the hospital. Christie’s veteran auctioneer George McNeely led a lively auction that included a stay at a private South African game reserve, a tour of TODAY! with Matt Lauer, a tour of the U.S. Capitol and breakfast with Senator Richard Blumenthal, a diamond and sapphire necklace donated by Betteridge, and an Hermés Birkin bag, courtesy of Richards. All funds raised will benefit the Emergency Department at Greenwich Hospital, which last year provided 43,000 services, 20 percent of which were for children. greenhosp.org
