Last night Ambassador C. Boyden Gray (Former Ambassador to the EU and Trust Board Member) hosted the Trust for the National Mall Board, the Women’s Committee, the L’Enfant Society Board Members and supporters of the Trust at his historic Georgetown residence.Â The private reception was in honor of the upcoming annual Benefit Luncheon, which will be held on Thursday, May 5th under tents guess where? Why on the Mall of course.Â About 75 or so guests, wandered through the Gray home, which for all intents and purposes is truly an art museum. His collection is astounding. Later he regaled a few of us with some stories about his exquisite pieces.
