Tudor Place Historic House and Garden — one of Georgetown’s and Washington’s greatest gems­­ ­— fended off the rain and hailed its great benefactor, Austin Kiplinger, at its 20th annual spring garden party on May 23. The major social event raised major money for the Tudor Place Foundation, which maintains the 31st Street property and offers numerous educational and historical programs to the public. Tudor Place was the home of Martha Washington’s granddaughter and six generations of her descendants, the Custis-Peter family. As the honoree and media executive Kiplinger, who received a painting of Tudor Place, summed up the event by smiling at the esteemed crowd and saying: “My cup runneth over.”
