A Walk in the Garden

September 29 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Come celebrate the return of Diana to Chatham! Friends of Chatham is hosting a very special champagne reception to celebrate the glory of the gardens on September 29, 2019 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm. This unique opportunity will include cocktails and hors d’oeuvres under the stars and special access to the mansion and grounds. The newly restored Diana statue will be unveiled, and volunteer gardeners will be stationed throughout the grounds to provide insights into garden restoration techniques, describe the demonstration garden area which pays homage to Ellen Biddle Shipman, the designer of the 1920s formal gardens, and answer your questions. The highlight of the evening will be a one-of-a-kind performance by celebrated Broadway star Patrick A’Hearn—an astoundingly gifted performer who will honor Chatham and the launch of the Friends of Chatham Endowment Fund.

Tickets include special evening access to the property, refreshments, and the concert. They are available for $75.00 per person on a first-come, first-served basis as space is limited! Go to www.friendsofchatham.org to purchase tickets or send a check made out to “Friends of Chatham” to Patsy Thompson, c/o Friends of Chatham, P.O. Box 36, Fredericksburg, VA 22404. Questions on the event can be sent to Patsy Thompson at patsylthompson@msn.com.

Please join us for this exclusive opportunity! It will be a beautiful, magical evening, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
