Dear Friends of Old Westbury Gardens,

Carol E LargeOld Westbury Gardens has provided a magical experience for many thousands of visitors for over 60 years. What it will be in 2018 and beyond will continue to be a reflection of the resources that we, the community and the visitors who enjoy the Gardens are willing to commit to its support. Even as the Gardens plans for the future we are keenly aware of the challenges ahead. Safeguarding an historic landmark and sharing its legacy with a broad-based community takes bricks and mortar, sustainable programs, horticultural expertise and an ambitious preservation program. All this made possible through the use of modern, leading edge horticultural and preservation practices and a bold approach to experiential education for children and families. Please help Old Westbury Gardens face these challenges with a contribution to the 2017 Annual Appeal.

Emily T FrickAuthor Brendan Gill famously said of Old Westbury Gardens: “I salute the faithful keepers of this treasure… it was intended as a place to be happy in, and so it is and so it will be. Past and future meet here in a green felicity.”

We ask you to join us to support the mission of Old Westbury Gardens and continue to be “faithful keepers of this treasure”. It is only through gifts such as ours that we will fulfill our purpose to preserve this extraordinary and complete example of a place and time, to keep the Gardens available for Long Island residents and for visitors across the globe to enjoy, today and in the century to come.

With appreciation of your support, past, present and future.

Kindest regards,

Carol E. Large                                    Emily T. Frick
