“RAISE A GLASS, RAISE THE CHIMNEY,” – Saturday, May 21, 7-10 PM
In 1916, Virginia’s prohibition law became effective. According to local legend, Robert Downham, then-owner of the Lee-Fendall House and local liquor wholesaler, lost his license after news spread around Alexandria of his entertaining President Woodrow Wilson with lavish amounts of alcohol at a dinner party.
One hundred years later, we are celebrating the occasion with a Prohibition party in our garden. Enjoy a glass (or two) of bubbly, win something in our silent auction, and celebrate the Lee-Fendall’s history!
The proceeds from this event will be going to restore the Lee-Fendall’s chimney, which is in severe danger of collapsing and damaging other parts of the property. Over its two and a quarter centuries of history, diverse dignitaries such George Washington, Robert E. Lee, and President of the United Mine Workers John L. Lewis have all enjoyed hospitality under this roof; it is imperative to protect this local treasure. We are hoping that by raising our glasses, we will be able to raise the chimney and preserve the Lee-Fendall House!
$50 per person for cocktail party; $75 per person for VIP ticket (In addition to admission to the cocktail party, VIP guests will receive a special tour of the house and enjoy a private reception beforehand with Mr. Downham and Woodrow Wilson – “bathtub gin” included! (The reception begins at 6 pm.)
Must be 21 years of age or older to attend.
Regular Tickets $50
VIP Tickets $75
