ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The Alexandria Symphony Orchestra's end of season fundraiser, the Annual Garden Party, grossed $56,000 on June 17 -- an all-time high.
 
Bob and Lindalee Fitton generously opened their magnificent residence, Fitton’s Landing on East Boulevard Drive in Alexandria, to the Symphony.

The event was chaired by Grady C. Frank, Jr., and he was joined by committee members Gincy Carosi, Julie Dyson, and Donnan C. Wintermute in planning the event.
 
Several business partners contributed immensely to the success of the event, including caterers Brabo Restaurant and Bittersweet Café, Unwined, and Lindsay Cadillac.
 
The Garden Party is the ASO’s major special event fundraiser and is an annual spring event, with a previous high of $52,000.
 
Previous venues for the event have included the Boyhood Home of Robert E. Lee on Oronoco Street, Clarens Estate on North Quaker Lane, and the Lord Fairfax House on Cameron Street.
 
The Symphony is one of Northern Virginia’s most vibrant performing arts groups and will be expanding to include a jazz orchestra series next season during 2010-2011.
