History of the Woodholme Estate:

Constructed in 1925 during prohibition, this Tudor-style home features two hidden liquor storage areas: a sliding
cabinet behind a bookcase and a wine cellar built into the dining room wall. The four bedroom, three and a
half bath home also features a library, a sun porch and an alchemist’s chamber.

To prepare this home for the more than 8,000 guests who annually attend the BSA’s popular fundraiser, 30 designers
decorate and furnish the estate’s 24 rooms. This year’s selection of award-winning interior designers includes
Maryland Chapter President of the American Society of Interior Designers Laura C. Kimball, Russell Slouck from
Gatehouse Interiors and Donna Melvin from Twin Diamond Studios, among others. One special wall even
includes a mural of the home’s history by Deborah E. Watson, Annapolis Interiors, Sur L'Avenue.

Baltimore Symphony Associates:

The Baltimore Symphony Associates (BSA) continues its long tradition of volunteers in service to the Baltimore
Symphony Orchestra reaching back to 1942 when it began as the Women’s Committee. More than 400 current
members use their time, energy and financial support to benefit the education programs of the BSO. The BSA
manages the Symphony Store at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, hosts several fundraising events, serves
as ushers at education programs and sponsors several pre-concert lectures each session.
