Affair in the Vines – Garden Party 2019!

This much anticipated annual event allows you to take a deep breath, relax and enjoy conversations, and revel in nature’s beauty, all while supporting your favorite men’s chorus.

This year’s Garden Party was held on May 19, 2019. Our hosts and proprietors, Jesse & Melissa Leimkuehler welcomed HMC patrons and guests to the historic and intriguing Belvoir Inn & Winery in Liberty, MO. The site of the former Odd Fellows Home, the massive inn with sprawling grounds has a fascinating history that includes stories of paranormal activities.

Patrons enjoyed a tasting of the fabulous wines produced at Belvoir, hors d’oeurvres, an exclusive behind-the scenes estate tour, and a complimentary bottle of Belvoir wine to take home as a momento of the visit.

Guests enjoyed a beautiful afternoon under the tent with an open bar, local wines and a summer buffet prepared by HMC’s own Chef Powell.

We are grateful to our Patrons, whose underwriting makes the Garden Party possible. Patron reservations are $300 and include two admissions to the event as well as the exclusive Patron hour. Individual guest tickets to Garden Party are $75 each.
