About the Preservation Gala

The Georgia Trust’s annual Preservation Gala is a night of lively entertainment and culinary delights from Atlanta’s top caterers. Attendees enjoy fine cuisine, cocktails and music. Dress is cocktail attire.

The Georgia Trust first held a Preservation Ball in 1984 and since then it has been staged at several different venues, including the Georgia State Capitol, the Georgian Terrace Hotel, the Biltmore Ballrooms and Ivy Hall.

This event is held rain or shine, and tickets are non-refundable.

Special thanks to our sponsors and patrons!
