The atrium of the Marbury Building in Mount Washington was a perfect setting for the theme of “Twilight Garden Party,” the annual fundraiser for the Women's Housing Coalition. Large, colorful arrangements of flowers dotted the tables, framed by huge glass windows — several stories high — that overlooked lush, green trees.“I think it's lovely and charming and tasteful,” said Karin Bluhm, Women's Housing Coalition executive director, as she looked down on the scene from the entry stairs above.Kristin Danielson, WHC philanthropy manager, equated the tableau with the nonprofit: “It [shows] the growth and the beauty of our organization and of the people that we serve.” As the guests scooped up little cones filled with crab salad and pretty little cupcakes at the food tables, Jane Robinson, board vice president, found something at the bar that also added to the evening's attractions.“I took a look at our signature drink,” she said. “It's made with Maker's Mark, which is one of my favorites. So I'm very excited.” If you are planning a fundraising party you would like considered for Scene & Heard coverage, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
