Come support “Sentimental Journeys 2016: Coming Home to Longue Vue” on Friday, April 8, which benefits the Longue Vue House and Gardens. Founded by philanthropists Edith and Edgar Stern, the historic estate features a world-class house museum, eight acres of beautiful gardens and even an interactive Discovery Garden for children. Their mission is to preserve and use the artistic legacy of Longue Vue to educate and inspire people to create art and pursue civic responsibility.
Join “Sentimental Journeys” Co-Chairs Anna Schaefer and Stephanie Laborde, as well as Honorary Co-Chairs Lynne Uhalt, William D. Hess and Longue Vue Board Chair Carol Reese in celebrating Longue Vue House and Gardens' major fundraising event, “Sentimental Journeys.” This event, created by Edith and Edgar Stern to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary and commemorate the ensuing 14-month trip around the world, first started in 1995. This year’s theme for the fundraiser is “Coming Home to Longue Vue,” and will include world-class cuisine and even a silent auction of amazing travel experiences, art and jewelry.
