A Vanity Affair takes you back to the turn of the previous century, an elegant era when the formal confines of society were being challenged by progressive ideals. Artists and writers explored serious modern issues while high society embraced the frivolous and the exotic. Magnificent Ivy Hall, built in 1883 and recently restored by the Savannah College of Art and Design, captures this contrast dramatically. Its gorgeous antiques and period finishes are offset by stunning contemporary art.
Join the Trust and Gala chairmen Heath Massey, John Mitchener and Georgia Schley Ritchie in honoring Camille Yow at a fabulous fun party with live entertainment, a full bar, and tasty offerings from Atlanta's finest caterers.
Dress is cocktail attire (Edwardian/Victorian-esque optional).

About Camille Yow, Honorary Chair of the 2013 Preservation Gala
Mrs. Yow has been integral to the success of many of The Georgia Trust's most successful special events. Starting in 1979, she has created, chaired and/or been a patron to over 40 events that raised over $2.5 million dollars. She launched the Halloween Castle, agreed to chair the first Salute to American Craft in the 1990s, and was the driving force behind both events for many years. In 2003 she was the Honorary Chair of the American Craft event, a fitting tribute to the woman who almost single-handedly transformed how the Trust operates its special events. Camille received the Volunteer of the Year Award in 1979, and because of her unparalleled contribution to the Trust as a volunteer, the award was renamed in her honor in 1998. She served on the Board of Trustees from 1979 to 1985, and on the Executive Committee from 1980 to 1982. Camille has supported the Hay House and Revolving Fund Capital Campaigns. Her other affiliations include the Atlanta Symphony, Cherokee Garden Club, and the Forward Arts Foundation, which runs the Swan Coach House in Atlanta.
Special thanks to this year's sponsors!
