Don your most magnificent millinery and join us for the 8th annual Spring Luncheon! An elegant lunch will be served in the Grand Hall, and a silent auction will be held in the Conservatory.
This year's guest speaker is renowned architect and interior designer Bobby McAlpine, founder of the McALPINE firm and author of The Home Within Us and Poetry of Place.
Born in an Alabama sawmill town, Bobby McAlpine designed his first house at five and hasn’t stopped since. Architect, romantic, poet, and entrepreneur, he envisions home as a timeless, graceful, and emotionally evocative place. From the time he founded the McALPINE firm in 1983, he has realized this ideal in a diverse array of traditional styles and regional vernaculars for clients all over the country and abroad.
McAlpine's popular furniture line, McAlpine Home, is available nationwide. He holds both architecture and interior design degrees and he continues his lifetime of learning in the world’s classroom. His critically acclaimed book, The Home Within Us (2010), quickly became and remains a Rizzoli bestseller. His much-heralded book, Poetry of Place (Rizzoli 2017), was released in October 2017.
