Step into the early 20th century lifestyle of Bonnet House creators Evelyn and Frederick Bartlett at “Entirely Entertaining” Feb. 22.
Set amidst the lush gardens and swan-laced lagoon, the veranda will be transformed into a wonderland of select themes showcasing the finest designs in dining and entertaining. A group of designers will create original décor themes on each of 30 guest tables.
The event begins at 11 a.m. with a champagne reception. A strolling violinist will entertain guests as they peruse the silent auction items in the courtyard. Attendees will then enjoy a three-course gourmet luncheon paired with wines at noon in the Bonnet House veranda.
“Twenty-one years ago, Mrs. Bartlett began this signature fundraising luncheon with several of her close friends and artists in order to preserve this tropical oasis that showcases the ecological and botanical significance of the area as well as the artistic and creative aspects of its residents,” said Susan Howell Gundlach, event chair.
Committee members for “Entirely Entertaining” include Brian Hill, Sandy Casteel, Valerie Viglione, Sondra St. Martin, Kathy Shampaine, William Gundlach III, Rosalie Rusovick, Lauren McGee, John and Carol Lucas, Kay Boynton, Mary Belle Cordell, Mike Osceola, Betty Young and Tony Pastucci.
Sponsors are Publix Super Market Charities, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Betty Douglas.
This one-of-a-kind, 35-acre tropical estate on the Atlantic Ocean was founded in 1920 and completed in 1938. The Bartletts, who were both artists and art patrons, created a tropical oasis to showcase the ecological and botanical significance of the area as well as the artistic and creative aspects of its residents. In 1983, Evelyn donated the house and property to the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation.
Tickets to “Entirely Entertaining” are $120. Premier guest tickets are $160 and include a champagne tour of Evelyn’s private quarters.
