You can feast among the foliage this month at Moorefields’ brunch gala. This year’s annual event is June 3, including a buffet from Hillsborough’s Louisiana-style restaurant LaPlace and live jazz music. The historic home, built in 1785 and renovated in 1982, will be open for tours, as well as tours of the grounds, including the organic farm and pesticide-free gardens and greens. All proceeds from the daytime gala support the historic preservation of Moorefields.

Moorefields executive director Barry Jacobs says he looks forward to hosting in a style befitting the place. “Moorefields is a great example of why so many Orange County and Triangle residents are committed to allying preservation with growth, nature with history.”  —Catherine Currin
