Great Outdoors Celebration & Auction is August 5th!

Join us for a lovely, fun-filled afternoon on Sunday, August 5th from 4-6:30pm for our annual Great Outdoors Celebration & Auction at the SKLT Barn in Matunuck.

Going once, going twice, sold to the highest bidder!

This event is the primary fundraising event for SKLT, and it just gets better every year. Truly reminiscent of a country auction, there are delicious appetizers, bartenders that know your name (or will make one up just to tease you a bit), beer provided from a local brewery, fabulous floral arrangements fresh from someone’s garden, and an auction and auctioneer that make you glad you left the beach and chose to support the preservation of open space in South Kingstown.


This year the honorary chairs are our founders: Roger Freeman, Helena-Hope Gammell, Anthony Guarriello, Virginia Kittredge, Ivory Littlefield and Edward Watson. We will honor them “in spirit.”  Their vision and perseverance has led us to where we are today. And just as we would not be here without them, we would not be here without the efforts and support of our members and the community. SKLT is looking forward to celebrating this legacy with their families, our members, and friends at the Barn.

Tickets are available below for $30 at the door.
