Celebrate Washington Heritage Museums At Bourbon & Boxwood Event

Proceeds to benefit Washington Heritage Museums

Fredericksburg — Washington Heritage Museums will host its third annual fundraiser, “Bourbon & Boxwood” at the Mary Washington House on September 23, 2017.

To celebrate the four museums, and to raise funds to continue to preserve the four 18th century buildings and their histories for future generations, the Washington Heritage Museums invites the community to “Bourbon & Boxwood,” a night of bourbon tastings, a full open bar, delicious food, live music, and garden and house tours, September 23, 2017, from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. at 1200 Charles St. The event will take place under the stars in the gardens and on adjoining Lewis Street.

Admission of $75 per person ($35 tax deductible) includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar and a night of fun including live performances by The Harry Wilson Trio, Ask Fred, and The Bruce Middle Trio. Raffle tickets for a beautiful painting of the Mary Washington House gardens are also available for $20, and participants need not be present to win. The painting is by artist Terri Beringer, whose work was featured at one of the homes on the 2016 Candlelight Tour.

Proceeds from the event will support the ongoing mission of Washington Heritage Museums.
