Rhodes Hall, Atlanta
Join us as we celebrate the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation’s 50th anniversary at this year’s Preservation Gala.
We are bringing it back to 1973, the year the Trust was founded to commemorate this landmark anniversary. We are excited to celebrate during an evening of fine food, cocktails and dancing at Rhodes Hall, the “Castle on Peachtree.” Designed by one of Atlanta’s most celebrated young architects for one of the city’s wealthiest men, Rhodes Hall is the most opulent of the many great houses that were built along Peachtree Street in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
This 1970s-themed evening will honor Georgia Trust President and CEO Mark C. McDonald for his 15 years of service to the Trust and his wife, Carmie. Event chairs Georgia Schley Ritchie and Mildred Spalding promise a night to remember!
Dress is cocktail attire. Themed 1970s cocktail attire is optional.
$5,000 Disco Patron (table for 8, limited number of spots available)
$2,000 Funk Patron (4 tickets)
$1,000 Soul Patron (2 tickets)
