Birthnight Supper and Ball Proceeds

Proceeds for the event will go toward the Neighborhood Friends of Mount Vernon’s 2019 annual project that supports the West Front Exterior Mansion Restoration. To keep the Mansion’s siding—much of which is original to Washington’s time—weathertight, and to ensure that it protects the building for years to come, it is imperative that we strip off the paint, make repairs, and then apply a fresh coat of paint and sand.
