REMINDER :: Groundhog Day is this weekend!

Groundhog Day Fundraiser
Theme: Light & Shadow

Our annual fundraiser is fast approaching.  There are only a few days left until we celebrate Groundhog Day on January 30, 2010  (we’ll leave February 2 to Punxsutawny Phil and friends).  Once again, our theme is Light & Shadow in honor of the telling shadow of the Groundhog. We encourage black & white cocktail attire, with particular appreciation for artful interpretation of our theme.

After four years exploring some of the most interesting industrial spaces in town, we are changing pace this year by taking the party to one of the most refined spaces in town, The Maryland Club.  The Club was designed by the prominent Baltimore firm of Baldwin and Pennington in the Romanesque Revival style in 1891. The Maryland Club features Beaver Dam marble on the exterior while the interiors are a rich interplay of oak, marble, ornate plaster, and faux finishes characteristic of high Victorian tastes of the time. The building today, after it’s 1995 fire, has been restored to its original grandeur and is an architectural time capsule of 19th century Baltimore. This is a wonderful opportunity to see this excellent example of late Victorian architecture while supporting the cause of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation in the process.

Parking is on site in the Maryland Club lot. Guests can access the lot on the 900 block of N. Charles Street. There is a gatehouse just past Kumari on the right side of the street. Click here for a map showing parking lot and entrance.

Please join us for our annual fundraiser.  The confines will be cozy, with the fires roaring!
