The evening’s menu perfectly captures the best of fall’s flavors while taking full advantage of Rhode Island’s natural bounty. From the local seafood to the farm-fresh veggies this is going to be one knockout meal.” Lieberman is serving as Amos House’s special guest and MC for the evening, mingling with the guests and acting as live auctioneer.
