Friday, October 3, 2008
6 PM - 9:30 PM
At Green-Wood's Historic Chapel

The evening will honor Pulitzer Prize winning author Debby Applegate for her 2006 biography on Henry Ward Beecher, The Most Famous Man in America.

$150 Benefit Tickets include reception, performance, and ceremony.

$250 VIP Tickets include reception, performance, ceremony, plus a signed copy of Applegate's Pulitzer Prize winning book and a special pre-event VIP trolley tour. VIP tickets are limited.

Proceeds from this Benefit will directly fund The Green-Wood Historic Fund's mandate for preservation projects such as the Louis Moreau Gottschalk monument restoration (part of the Historic Fund's Saved in Time Program), educational programs in conjunction with our local
public schools on topics ranging from the Civil War to art and architecture and community outreach events such as our author lecture series in Green-Wood's Historic Chapel, concerts, dance performances and seasonal special events.
