Thanks All Around for the Georgetown House Tour
By April 21, 2022 0 657•
Last evening, the Patrons’ Party for the 2022 Georgetown House Tour at the Langhorne residence was a happy affair with grateful Georgetowners gathering to support the tour and saying hello again in this almost post-pandemic city. The House Tour opens its doors on April 23.
Thanks go to Donna Leanos, chair of the 2022 Georgetown House Tour, and party co-chairs, Emily Sower and Kathryn Minor Jones — as well as to the volunteers and, of course, Rev. Gini Gerbasi, rector of St. John’s Church Georgetown. The proceeds from the party benefit the St. John’s ministries to homeless adults and children, the unemployed, senior citizens, and young children in D.C. schools.
We are thankful to the work and legacy of Frida Burling, the House Tour’s guiding light for so many years. Many of us at The Georgetowner knew her and remember her with great affection. So, that is why we at The Georgetowner feel so honored and grateful to receive the Frida Burling Award this year for the many years of serving Georgetown and keeping the community connected.
Thanks also go out to the sponsors of the Georgetown House Tour: Platinum level, Long & Foster Real Estate; Gold, Washington Fine Properties; Silver, TTR Sotheby’s International Real Estate; Bronze, Sarah Minard Residential and Truist.
See you on Saturday — and, again, thank you to the Georgetown House Tour, which brings our town together as this newspaper does.
Patrons’ Party photos will be displayed in the next print issue of The Georgetowner.
