ATLANTA – Chair Frances Flock and volunteer leaders of the 2009 Cathedral Antiques Show met with Jody Abstance, president of Dorsey Alston, Realtors, Atlanta’s oldest independent residential real estate firm and a diamond sponsor of the show, to discuss plans for the event, which heralds the winter season.

“The Cathedral Antiques Show will begin with a gala preview party on Wednesday, Jan. 21, and will be open to the public on Thursday, Jan. 22 through Saturday, Jan. 24,” Flock said. “Since its inception 38 years ago, the Cathedral Antiques Show, the city’s oldest antique exhibition and sale, has donated [more than] $2.5 million to Atlanta charities.”

This year’s beneficiary, Soul Changers Women’s House, provides recovery treatment and residential programs to indigent addicts and alcoholics, enabling them to resume productive, healthy lives. Abstance noted that, “Dorsey Alston is again pleased to be a sponsor of the Cathedral Antiques Show and contribute to an important charitable foundation in the city, which serves those in need of help.”

“Special guest speaker at the 2009 Cathedral Antiques Show will be William Seale, a noted White House historian, who will lecture on Friday evening, Jan. 23,” said Mary Mercer, Show chair-elect. “Focusing on the show’s theme of ‘Restoration,’ nationally acclaimed restoration expert Steve Sherwood will present a hands-on forum on furniture restoration on the morning of Saturday, Jan. 24, followed by a luncheon.”

Spencer Tunnell, landscape architect will speak on Thursday, Jan. 22, on garden restoration.

Cathedral Antiques Show tickets are available at a $15 donation and may be used during the three days of the event. To order tickets, please call 404.365.1107 or visit
