5th Annual Bounty of the County Gala

Home  >>  Events  >>  5th Annual Bounty of the County Gala


 Bounty of the County was a great success!  The Bounty of the County Gala is SALT Development’s major fundraiser and was an evening of culinary decadence and delight. Executive Chef Tyler DeGroff of Hen & the Hound Bistro worked with local Schoharie Valley and regional farmers and businesses to showcase regional ingredients, beer and spirits.  SALT also entertained a silent auction throughout the night.  Over $26,000 was raised is cash donations and $26, 576 through in-kind services and donations. To read the press release and view photographs from the event, click here. 

The event, chaired by SALT board member Pat Clancy,  benefits SALT Development, a community development and emergency preparedness organization in Schoharie County.  SALT is well known in the region for coordinating flood relief after Hurricane Irene.  SALT’s focus is now on emergency preparedness and community development, and the organization is committed to growing a stronger community to help withstand future disasters.
