Revel amid flickering tiki torches while sipping a cool beverage and listening to steel drums poolside at Brucemore during this year’s Tahitian Party on June 24 from 6:30 to 10:00 p.m. Enjoy roast suckling pig, noshes, and Polynesian drinks provided by Brucemore’s new and returning food vendors – Benz Beverage Depot, Braise, First Avenue Wine House, Ruzicka’s, Wright Touch Bake Shoppe and Catering, and Zins Restaurant. Bid on exclusive Brucemore experiences in the silent auction, such as special floral packages from the Brucemore Cutting Gardens Flower Shop, VIP ticket packages for Brucemore events, exclusive dining experiences on the estate, and private brunch on Brucemore’s West Porch. All proceeds benefit the Lord & Burnham Greenhouse Rehabilitation Project to begin in July with completion targeted for October. The public is invited to contribute to the greenhouse project; donors of $1,000 or more will be acknowledged on a donor recognition tree to be placed in the greenhouse.

Sarah Anderson, member of the Tahitian Party Steering Committee, said, "I'd be hard pressed to find a way I'd rather spend a midsummer's evening in Iowa. There may be no better vantage to appreciate the mansion, its history, and the general splendor of summer in Cedar Rapids than gathered poolside at Brucemore with friends and patrons alike at the Tahitian Party."
