Save the Date for LTV’s 20th Annual Garden Party
Sunday, May 20, 2018 at
Mrs. Rose Marie Bogley’s
“Peace and Plenty” at Bollingbrook
The Land Trust of Virginia’s (LTV) annual Garden Party to Save Virginia’s Countryside will be held on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at “Peace and Plenty” at Bollingbrook, the spectacular estate of Mrs. Rose Marie Bogley. Located in Upperville, “Peace and Plenty”, is a quintessential hunt country farm, consisting of an exquisitely renovated 1809 classic Southern plantation manor with rich architectural detail and an even richer history. Well-crafted outbuildings, including an old chapel, stone walls, and naturalized landscapes enhance the setting, which exudes the tranquility implied by the estate’s name. Please join LTV for an afternoon celebrating efforts to conserve Virginia’s open space, natural resources, and cultural heritage.
The Garden Party will feature a “wet paint” auction, Painting for Preservation, where artists will create individual and unique artworks from selected locations in the “Peace and Plenty” gardens. Party guests will be able to bid on these works of art during the party to secure their opportunity to take a canvas home as well as bid in a Silent Auction.
This event is LTV’s major fundraising event of the year and includes a silent auction full of unusual gifts not found anyplace else. It is the region’s annual party not to be missed.
For additional information, an invitation, tickets, and details on sponsorship opportunities, please contact Kerry Roszel, Development Associate at 540-687-8441 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
