'Step Back in Time' at Filoli estate

Fans of Downton Abbey who also happen to be fans of Woodside's Filoli can combine their loves at a Thursday, July 17, fundraiser for the historic estate and gardens, where guests are invited to come in 1920s costume, if they chose, and explore Filoli in the moonlight.

The "Step Back in Time" event will run from 5 to 8 p.m. at Filoli, 86 Canada Road in Woodside.

Catered hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be served by Filoli staff and volunteers in period dress reminiscent of Filoli's 1920s household staff.

Live music will be provided by the Magnolia Jazz Band, which performs jazz classics from the 1920s through the 1940s. Also performing will be Andrea Shippy and Flip Casey, playing early jazz favorites, including the Charleston, and pianists Martha Girdlestone and Sue Mattias, playing early 20th century melodies.

Tickets go on sale June 16 at $50 for members and $60 for others. They must be purchased by 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 15.

Go to filoli.org or call 364-8300, ext. 508, on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to buy tickets.
