The Garland's 1912 Italian Renaissance Revival mansion provided a wonderful backdrop for this event.
As one of the first homes built on West Paces Ferry, this residence captured the guests imagination. It has been meticulously restored and the Garland's art collection, featuring many regional artists, is prominently displayed. The house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988 and has been featured in more than half a dozen movies. The warmth and charm of the Garlands is echoed throughout the gorgeous home. The hosts were joined by "Pavo," the Garland's resident dog, and "Sally Garland," the four-legged firm mascot for Garland, Samuel & Loeb. As experienced party hosts, the two canines strolled quietly among the guests while Doug Ashworth, director of the State Bar's Transition Into Law Practice Program, and Hyoun Joo Song, played the Garland's concert grand piano.
