NORWALK, Conn. – The 2013 Light Keeper’s Gala, which benefits the historic Sheffield Island Lighthouse, will be held Saturday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Norwalk Inn and Conference Center on East Avenue, the Norwalk Seaport Association announced.
The Exchange Club of Norwalk will be honored at the event, and will receive the seaport association’s Beacon Award for service to the community and support of the association’s mission.
The theme for Saturday’s gala will be “Hurray for Hollywood,” and will feature dining, dancing, cocktails and both silent and live auctions.
“Our Hollywood theme is fitting because our volunteers are really the stars of the organization,” said seaport association President Irene Dixon in a statement. “The NSA is an all-volunteer organization, and we could never be successful without them in our mission of preserving the lighthouse and educating the thousands of visitors to the island each year about Long Island Sound and Norwalk’s maritime heritage.”
