WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The Woman’s Club of White Plains recently ended its fundraising season with an inaugural “Jazz for the Gardens” featuring Glenda Davenport and the Hiroshi Trio.

Nearly 100 people attended this first-ever event at the CV Rich Mansion in White Plains, home to the Woman’s Club for nearly 60 years.

The event featured hot and cold hors d'oeuvres from Caperbury Catering as well as sumptuous desserts. The musicians were set up in the living room of the mansion, but the tunes could be heard throughout the house and gardens. Guests wined and dined themselves to the accompaniment of the outstanding music.

As spectacular a setting as this historic house is, the gardens were the highlight of the evening. The flowers were a cornucopia of colors and the grounds immaculately tended.

The beautiful weather allowed guests to sit out on the patio and enjoy the wonderful surroundings.

Proceeds from the event will be used to continue to maintain and improve the gardens promising an even better event next year.

The Woman’s Club of White Plains and The Woman’s Club of White Plains Foundation are a fellowship of women and teens dedicated to community service through volunteering and raising money to support nonprofit organizations in the White Plains area and beyond. The Woman’s Club and Foundation are also committed to maintaining the historic CV Rich mansion, their home for the last 80 years, from which they continue their philanthropic and volunteer efforts.

The mansion is at 305 Ridgeway, White Plains.
