The Stephen D. Lee Foundation will celebrate Valentine’s Day early this year. Its sixth annual Valentine’s party will be Thursday, Feb. 11 from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. at the new home of Edna and Rick McGill in Columbus.
“The only word to describe this house is spectacular,” said Eulalie Davis, president of the Stephen D. Lee Foundation. “Our guests are in for a real treat for all the senses. Mr. and Mrs. McGill have transformed a house that has held a lot of intrigue for the community into a showplace.”
The event is a fundraiser for the Stephen D. Lee Home and Museum. Committee members include Diane Gatewood, Judy Livingston, Betty Waters, Sue Hatcher and Lillian Wade.
Lee Home Docents will serve as hostesses. This year they will again “create fabulous flower arrangements and bake delicious desserts and savory items to complement the spirits being offered,” Davis said. Guests are invited to drop in or to spend the entire evening touring the house and enjoying the decadent desserts.
“Just as we at the Lee Home have saved a landmark, the McGills have saved a unique house and made it a home. The community and neighborhood owe them a great deal of gratitude. No detail in this house has been overlooked; it even has a gorgeous elevator that stops at every floor.”
For more information about the party, contact Davis at 662-328-3088. For information about the Stephen D. Lee Home, call 662-327-8888 or visit lee-homemuseum.com.
