Southridge at Sunset
February 18, 2018 | 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm |
Join the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation for a sophisticated evening cocktail party at the Thomas and Berniece Griffing Residence. Built in 1962 and designed by Ross Patton and Albert “Duke” Wild, the California Ranch-style midcentury residence is located in the exclusive Southridge enclave and features spectacular evening views of the valley’s glittering lights. The Griffing Residence was recently restored by homeowner and preservation architect Susan Secoy-Jensen who deftly created an environment of “lavish minimalism.” Great architecture, sparkling conversation and magnificent views combine for an unforgettable Palm Springs evening. This is another opportunity for the ladies (and their escorts) to wear their best vintage cocktail attire. During the event, PSPF will make a short announcement about its inaugural “Patrick McGrew Memorial Research Grant” and will recognize the grant’s first recipient. Noted midcentury architect Hugh Kaptur (who designed both the Steve McQueen and William Holden Residences on Southridge) is an invitee.
