Thanks to the Georgetown House Tour — and Frida Burling  

The Patrons’ Party on April 20 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. We are happy to report that your hometown newspaper (since 1954) was honored at the event.  

The House Tour opened 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 Service 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.  

Again, thank all of you involved in Georgetown House Tour for this award — and see you next year.
