Roswell looks forward to 2013 Magnolia Ball

June 5, 2013 by  

This weekend sees one of the highlights in the local calendar take place, as the 2013 Magnolia Ball is hosted at the Country Club of Roswell.

An elegant and graceful evening celebrating the childhood home of Mittie Bulloch, the mother of the Theodore Roosevelt , it is a tradition which many in the immediate area, and throughout Atlanta, eagerly anticipate each year.

A black tie event that sees many of Atlanta’s great and good come to town, this year’s fund-raising efforts will be focused on the 19th century Carriage House. With a new gift having been donated to Bulloch Hall, the swift reconstruction of the charming building is now imperative.

Stressing the need for urgency for cash to be raised, the Site Coordinator of Bulloch Hall, Mrs. Billingsley, said:

“An authentic Lady’s Carriage from the 1840’s [sic] has been donated to Bulloch Hall by Dr. and Mrs. Herb West. This charming antique will be on display in our newly constructed Carriage House this Fall.”

Stationery printers have likely been working hard to ensure the new material for the hall is delivered on time too, though the success of the silent auction on Saturday night will be key.

With live music from Atlanta favorites Grapevine, along with fine wine, food, and cocktails, the listed building will hopefully be well supported.

An important building in the history of the nation, this year is the 28th time in which its history and position has been celebrated.

The event gets under way at 6.30 pm on Saturday, June 8.
