Secret Garden Party



Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

The threat of showers didn’t materialize, and there was not a drop of rain at the Secret Garden Party at the Georgetown home of Christy Fancher. Rose and Iris sponsors gathered at 6PM to enjoy passed appetizers and a specialty cocktail, then joined the guests who arrived later for drinks and dinner.

Chairs Jim Ed and Katie Lane organized a fabulous party, including a large silent auction that ended with many happy people who’d won coveted items. All funds raised help the Discovery Center in their mission of “Engaging Curious Minds to Fuel the Future.”
