Washington Heritage Museums is delighted to announce that we will host our eighth annual Bourbon and Boxwood fundraising event on September 30. We are excited to return to the fall season for this iconic event at the Mary Washington House, which sells out annually! It has been an exciting year for Washington Heritage Museums as we recently assumed the stewardship of the Mary Washington Monument and Caretaker’s Lodge. Bourbon and Boxwood, in addition to being an enjoyable community event, is an outstanding and fun way to support all five Washington Heritage Museums properties as well as the enriching programs and events we offer throughout the year.

Washington Heritage Museums is funded entirely by museum admissions, grants, memberships, sponsorships, and donations. As the organization does not receive continuing city, state, or federal funding, we are truly grateful for our donors and sponsors.

Included with the individual ticket price of $125 per person is an evening of live music, savory hors d'oeuvres, bourbon tasting, and an open bar. As thanks for their generous support, our event sponsors also receive additional benefits, listed below.

In addition to the benefits listed below, sponsors at the Bar, Tent, Food, Entertainment, Gold, and Silver Levels will also receive an invitation to a special pre-party cocktail hour at the home of Jan and Bjorn Bieneck. Located just steps away from the event venue, this home has a history entwined with the Mary Washington House. Built c1790, it served as the home of George Lewis, grandson of Mary Washington. Her doctor, Elisha Hall, also owned the property for a period of time. Lovingly restored by the Jan and Bjorn, the home features beautiful antiques curated from both America and Sweden. Guests will enjoy a sparkling wine toast and bourbon punch as they stroll the Bieneck's beautiful garden.

Bourbon and Boxwood is an iconic event that sells out each year. Be sure to purchase your sponsorship or individual tickets as soon as possible!
