Perhaps you already know, or suspect, that because of COVID-19, the Land Trust of Virginia has cancelled our 22nd Annual Garden Party, scheduled for Sunday, May 31st, beginning at 4:00 p.m.
For 21 years, families who have put their properties into easement, our supporters who have financially helped us do this work, and friends who appreciate our protected open spaces, have gathered to celebrate all that we have accomplished together — Almost 22,000 acres in 17 Virginia counties permanently protected.
Financially, this annual celebration has helped raise the funds we need to keep up our conservation work. Donations from the community to our silent auction (part of the event), ticket sales, and Garden Party sponsors have enabled us to raise the funds that supports our staff’s work from spring through mid-summer.
But all is not lost! We invite you to sit back and have a bit of fun while joining us on Sunday, May 31st at 4:00 p.m. (the appointed party time), in the comfort of your home for our
Phantom Garden Party
For the occasion, pour yourself something special to drink and get out of your PJs and don your Garden Party attire. Make an event of it. Take your picture and send it to us. And enjoy what we have prepared for you. NOTE: This is not a Zoom call.
For additional information about the Phantom Garden Party, please contact Kerry Roszel, Development Manager at 540-687-8441 or email@example.com
