There's just no getting around it. No matter how closely we examine our fundraising connections
and assets, none of us active in U.S. fundraising will ever be able to hold a charity event quite like the one recently hosted
by Bee Gee Robin Gibb and his wife Dwina (an artist and Druid) at their Oxfordshire estate
, to benefit the group Against Breast Cancer.
Twelfth century mansions and former monasteries are simply hard to come by around our fifty states.
Especially ones that, according to their owner
are haunted by a prank-playing ghost who mysteriously winds nonexistent clocks and fills up the chapel font with water.
Oh well. At least your major donors are less likely to face any spectral surprises.
