Gossips' Picks for Saturday Night

Tomorrow, there are two events that you can attend and enjoy and know you supporting good work and worthy causes. 

At 4 p.m., at Christ Church Episcopal, on the corner of Union and East Court streets, there is a concert entitled Love, Nature and Time Well Spent. Mary Deyerle Hack, mezzo-soprano, Martin Mansfield, baritone, and Gili Melamed-Lev, piano, will be performing works by Hahn, Schumann, Copland, Bernstein, Vaughan Williams, and Berlin to benefit the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA. A reception follows the concert, with refreshments provided by Destino Cocina Mexicana in Chatham. The suggested donation is $20. All proceeds benefit the humane society.

From 5 to 7, Chris Jones and Susan Simon invite you for cocktails and snacks at 127 Union Street. The event, which is hosted by Carrie and Nick Haddad, benefits the Hudson Children's Book Festival Scholarship Fund. Guests are asked to make a donation of $25. Each $25 donation enables a student in the Hudson City School District to purchase a book of their choice at the Hudson Children's Book Festival on May 3 directly from an author and have their book signed by the author. A similar event last year enabled 400 kids to buy books at the book fair. There is still time to RVSP via email to join the party and give a kid the chance to participate fully in the 2014 Hudson Children's Book Festival.
