Support Conservation by Sponsoring LTV’s 23rd Annual Garden Party and Come to the Burden’s Seven Springs Farm on October 10th!
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10th – Exclusive Cocktail Party at Historic Seven Springs Farm – Home of Childs & Elaine Burden
This small gathering is exclusively designed for our good friends and will take place in the Burden’s graceful gardens, with views of the glorious Blue Ridge and Bull Run Mountains, with delicious food and drink.
For your contribution now you will receive the link to the Virtual May 23rd Garden Party plus tickets to the October 10th Cocktail Party at the Burden’s.
As you know, we had to cancel last year’s Garden Party due to the pandemic, but we thought for sure we would be able to gather this year. But here we are again. We had to decide – Should we hold it in-person or virtually; should we have it now or postpone it? We realized that what is most important is for all of us to be safe.
Our Garden Party is our biggest fundraising event of the year. Each Spring we depend upon your support of the Garden Party to continue our work.
So, we decided to ask for your support NOW because we need it to continue to do our conservation work. We decided to do our Garden Party now but virtually and then get together in-person in the Fall.
What we also decided to do, again to be safe and keep the number of guests down, we decided to hold –
TWO in-person events in the Fall.
Two events at two different price points.
Two different dates, two different locations.
You get to decide which one you’d like to attend and how much you’d like to contribute to our work.
Only our most generous of supporters are being invited to the Burden’s Cocktail Party on October 10th.
When you give now you will get …
- The link to join us on Sunday, May 23rd– Come take a walk with us virtually down the very special garden paths of Bunny Mellon’s Oak Spring Gardens with a guided tour by Sir Peter Crane, President of the Oak Spring Garden Foundation.
