Thanks to the Georgetown House Tour – and Frida Burling
The April 20th Patrons’ Party for the 2022 Georgetown House Tour at the Langhorne residence was a joyful affair, with grateful Georgetowners gathering to support the tour and say hello again to this near-postpandemic city. We are pleased to announce that your home newspaper (since 1954) was honored at the event.
The House Tour opened its doors on April 23rd. Thank you to Donna Leanos, Chair of the 2022 Georgetown House Tour, and the party’s Co-Chairs, Emily Sower and Kathryn Minor Jones – as well as the volunteers and, of course, Rev. Gini Gerbasi, Rector of St. John’s Church Georgetown. Proceeds from the party will benefit St. John’s Ministries for Homeless Adults and Children, the Unemployed, Seniors and Young Children in DC Schools.
We are grateful for the work and legacy of Frida Burling, the House Tour leader for so many years. Many of us at The Georgetowner knew her and remember her with great fondness. This is why we at The Georgetowner are so honored and grateful to receive this year’s Frida Burling Service Award for many years of service in Georgetown and keeping in touch with the community.
Thanks also to Georgetown House Tour sponsors: Platinum Level, Long & Foster Real Estate; Gold, Washington Fine Properties; Silver, TTR Sotheby’s International Real Estate; Bronze, Sarah Minard Residential and Truist.
Thank you again to everyone involved with the Georgetown House Tour for this award – and see you next year.
