Raise a Glass, Raise the Chimney

Raise a Glass, Raise the Chimney is a prohibition themed party and silent auction hosted by the Virginia Trust for Historic Preservation.
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 of his entertaining President Woodrow Wilson with lavish amounts of alcohol at a dinner party. One hundred years later, we are commemorating the occasion with a Prohibition party and silent auction in our garden.
All proceeds will help restore the Lee-Fendall House chimney that is in severe danger of collapsing and damaging other parts of the property.
Lee-Fendall House Museum & Garden
Tickets available online at www.leefendallhouse.org ($50-75).
Creative cocktail attire & period clothing is encouraged!
