A Litchfield Garden Party for Two Good Causes

It’s called Tea for Two Hundred but there seemed to be many more people than that at the home of Gael Hammer and Gary Goodwin in Washington, CT, on Saturday afternoon, July 26, at the fundraiser for the Northwestern Connecticut AIDS Project and the Susan B. Anthony Project, which promotes safety, healing, and growth for all survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.  Guests were requested to wear white and many enthusiastically participated in the 11th annual hat contest. But all eyes were on the event’s honorary chairman, a radiant Laura Linney, who has a house in nearby Salisbury and wore neither white nor a hat.
