QUINCY — The Friends of the Lorenzo Bull House and the Women’s City Club invite the public to the first fundraiser for the restoration of the 1855 Lorenzo Bull House and its gardens at 1550 Maine.
A $50 ticket provides a sit-down meal and support for the current huge wrap-around porch restoration project. A cash bar will open at 5:30 p.m. Attendees will learn about the history of the house and the family that built it. People can also “adopt a brooch” and bid on auction items to support the restoration.
Reservations can be made online at friendsofthelorenzobullhouse.org by mailing a check to FLBH Dinner, 1550 Maine, Quincy, Ill., 62301 or in person at the Quincy Park District Office, 1231 Bonansinga Drive.
Donations for restoration are also appreciated.
