Proceeds from this event will support the restoration and preservation of George Washington's beloved home, Mount Vernon. As an IRS 50l(c)(3) tax exempt entity (#54-0564701), Mount Vernon is not a government-funded park or agency. We rely on the generosity of friends like you for contributions needed to save George Washington's historic estate.
