A FUNDRAISING event takes place tonight (October 29) at High Elms Manor, formerly known as Garston Manor.


For One Night Only is in support of the Herts Air Ambulance charity at the manor that has recently been transformed with the help of Channel 4's Country House Rescue.


High Elms Manor is an elegant, 200-year-old, Grade II listed, Georgian property situated in Hertfordshire, on the outskirts of Watford.


The mansion is surrounded by 21 stunning acres, including 10 acres of protected woodland, making it a first class location for a variety of events.


Thirteen years ago Sheila O'Neill bought this significant property when it was in desperate need of renovation and some TLC. The years that followed have seen the family lovingly restore this historic building to its former glory.


In recent months, the O'Neill family have been working with Channel 4 presenter Ruth Watson and the Manor will be featured in the next series of Country House Rescue, due to be aired in early 2011.


High Elms Manor has just announced their first public event on Friday, 29th October 2010. This is a 'Fine Art Party' in association with Brizatti Fine Art and features champagne, canapes, music and beautiful, original, contemporary paintings from some of the world's best emerging artists.


This is a unique opportunity for those who are looking to buy art to socialise with other art lovers and enjoy a great evening out. A donation from all ticket and art sales at the event will be made to the Herts Air Ambulance charity.


The ticket cost for this event is only 10 per ticket and includes canapes, live music and a glass of bubbly. Tickets are available online at www.brizatti.com/highelmstickets or call 0845 0583942.
