The Belle Meade School community would like to thank all those who attended our fundraiser at Montpelier on Saturday evening (May 12).

We are especially grateful to to Sarah and Jim Wildasin for opening their beautifully restored, historic house and grounds.

The combination of the spectactular setting, Sylvie Rowand’s (Laughing Duck Gardens & Cookery) delicious food, Dontez Inferno’s and Belle Meade students’ music, created a joyful evening.
