Birthday Bash

Commemorating the estate’s hundredth birthday in high style, Blithewold’s “The Celebration of a Century” gala drew a crowd of nearly 400. Guests lingered over a candlelit dinner served on the property’s sweeping waterfront lawn and danced well into the night to the twenty-six-piece Bion Orchestra. A chunk of the $220,000 raised will fund the replacement of the mansion’s original slate roof.
