ATLANTA – The 2009 Cathedral Antiques Show, culminating with the Tour of Homes, celebrated another successful year by adding to the $2.5 million donated to Atlanta charities since its inception in 1971. Chair Frances Flock called Cathedral Antiques Show sponsors, including The White House Historical Association, Arrow Exterminators, Dorsey Alston, Realtors, and Jerry Dilts & Associates Catering Company, “especially generous friends of the Cathedral Antiques Show whose support helped fund a major contribution to this year’s beneficiary, Soul Changers Women’s House.” At the Gala Preview party, chairs Wellons Moog and Molly Caine, also a Dorsey Alston agent, welcomed guests including Jody Abstance, president of diamond sponsor Dorsey Alston, Realtors.
The theme “Restoration” reflected not only the 38th annual Cathedral Antiques Show’s focus on lectures by restoration experts but also on beneficiary Soul Changers Women’s House, which restores indigent addicts to healthy, productive lives through treatment and residential programs.
“Dorsey Alston is again pleased to be a sponsor of the Cathedral Antiques Show and contribute to an important charitable foundation in metro Atlanta which serves those in need of help,” Abstance said.
Beginning with the Gala Preview Party and three days of programs by antiques specialists including Dr. William Seale, renowned White House historian and author of The President’s House: A History, the Cathedral Antiques Show featured 35 dealers from the Netherlands, Belgium, New York, Connecticut and states across the nation.
The Cathedral Antiques Show & Tour of Homes is Atlanta’s oldest and most prestigious antiques show featuring dealers offering exquisite 18th and 19th century antiques consisting of furniture, paintings, textiles, porcelain, jewelry, silver and other fine pieces.
