May at Morven: Garden Party, Programs, and More
Morven in May's Garden Party, our largest fundraiser of the year, will take place on Fri, May 6 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. with a weather date of Saturday, May 7.

Featured at the Garden Party will be a hearty grazing menu with a signature cocktail, live entertainment, and silent auction. Included items for the silent auction are: a Tour of Mount Vernon Garden's with J. Dean Norton, Director of Horticulture, Six Months of Floral Arrangements, Afternoon Tea at Boxwood Gardens, a Baxter Craftsman for the day, and more.
