Surrounded by an extravagant array of flowers, hearts and desserts the Stephen D. Lee Home and Museum celebrated its first ever Valentine''s Day Party Feb. 14. Party-goers were captivated by a dazzling assortment of cakes, fruits, chocolates, cookies and much more, all while enjoying time with their friends and loved ones.
Betty and Mike Waters opened their home for the occasion and, along with Judy Livingston and Diane Gatewood, created a wonderland for guests. Fifteen top-notch cooks and devoted supporters of the Lee Home prepared the delectable desserts.
Stephen D. Lee Foundation president Eulalie Davis said, "The evening surpassed my expectations. We had a wonderful crowd of all ages and were able to get the word out about the Lee Home to people who may not be as familiar with the house as the docents and patrons are. It was a perfect evening. The Lee Foundation Board is extremely appreciative of all who supported the event by their attendance and/or donation."
The event was held as a fundraiser for the Stephen D. Lee Home and Museum.
