Guests will enjoy champagne and wine, as well as a brunch of breakfast dishes, baked goods, and savories in the Casa’s gardens, accompanied by live jazz duo, Joan & Tonic. An outdoors-themed silent auction focuses on summer fun including a croquet party, separate star-gazing party and even a private barbecue at the Casa, plus a decorative garden plaque featuring antique tiles from the Casa, a lemonade kit made with lemons grown onsite, a Mexican-inspired margarita and guacamole basket, and overnight horseback riding trip, and packages for bird watching, hiking, gardening, and other outdoor activities.

The al fresco event is intended to recreate the sort of gathering that the Casa’s owners, George and Carrie Steedman gave while they lived there, beginning in 1925. The historic home still contains their original furnishings, antiques, artwork, and personal items from that era. The gardens remain as originally planned and planted, with few changes. Proceeds from the event will help maintain the estate and gardens.
