Boyden Gray and Martha Stewart for Acadia
The cultural magnate hosted David Rockefeller and other island stalwarts in support of the group that supports this 47,000-acre national park of mountains and ocean. This event raised $80,000 for the friends group -- setting them way ahead of goals despite the tough economy.
"Any plans to visit Georgetown?" she was asked. "It's cute," she said nicely. 'Nuff said. Hey, Boyden's house deserves a visit, don't we think? It would be a "good thing." Research.
Stewart escorted guests throughout her lovely house and showed the nonegenarian Rockefeller through her kitchen, including colored eggs and a 10-foot bulletin board full of ideas and invitations. Many of those.
Friends of Acadia Chair Lili Pew, noting the fundraising record, thanked Martha and all the guests in attendance.
