The Silo at Hunt Hill Farm in the Northville section of New Milford recently played host to a fundraising dinner for Lynnia Milliun.

The event featured food prepared by culinary friends of Milliun, herself a well-known and much-loved chef.

Close to 150 friends, family and culinary enthusiasts attended the event, which exceeded its goals to help Milliun in her battle against pancreatic cancer.

Lanterns greeted guests in the barnyard, and the gallery featured artwork by Elizabeth McDonald.

Musicians Doug White and Bary Blitt, and Ghosts of the Valley provided entertainment.

“We were thrilled to offer our grounds and buildings for this very special event and help our friends in the culinary community,” said Paula Walsh, president of The Silo board of directors.

“This evening only strengthens our passion and purpose as a community-based nonprofit,” Walsh said.
