The purpose is to raise funds for the ongoing preservation and restoration of this magnificent estate and it’s beautiful formal gardens. Sponsors, patrons, supporters, and volunteers gathered this year under a perfect umbrella of sunshine studded flowering trees.
A light breeze carried the smells of tantalizingly delicious fare while the sounds of jazz, show tunes, and dueling pianos swirled with conversation. The Second Annual Plein Air Festival was held here at the same time.
Organizers created a pop-up gallery and held their awards ceremony during the peek of the tasting event. In the end, all who love this historic place come to this premier event to experience the magic, offer support, and invest in our community.
