Hosted by Mr. Dirk DeJong and Mrs. Monica McAfee

Celebrate eighteen years of preservation and heritage by being among the crowd at the Sample-McDougald House’s inaugural fundraising gala. 

Set up in vintage flair, the evening will be designed to exquisitely reflect the style of the life and times of the 1920s.  Tour the house, sip cocktails, sample elegant hors d’oeuvres and enjoy jazzy music on the terrace among the grandeur of our Colonial Georgian-revival home, listed on the National and Local Register of Historic Places.

Funds raised at the event directly support the Sample-McDougald House’s ongoing preservation of the House, educational programming for all ages, interpretive daily tours and community programs.  ​
