The 9th Annual Paca Girlfriends Flower Power Party kicked off on June 21st with more than 750 women descending on the William Paca House and Gardens. Along with the event’s signature cocktail, the PacaTini, the sold out crowd indulged on gourmet food from some of the area’s premier caterers. Paca’s boisterously dressed “girlfriends” mingled throughout the gardens, enjoying live entertainment and a festive outdoor marketplace featuring home accessories; fashion elements; jewelry; health and beauty products; and worldwide walking tours. First Lady Yumi Hogan joined the crowd and Mayor Michael Pantelides was on hand as the guest bartender dressed in seersucker!

The annual event is held each June and draws women from across the greater Annapolis area to celebrate the beauty and charm of the William Paca House and Garden, and to enjoy an evening of friendship, food, flowers and fun. The event was founded in 2009 by Judi Herrmann, president of Herrmann Advertising | Branding | Technology, in an effort to help Historic Annapolis raise funds and elevate community awareness of its many events, educational programs, activities and potential for the future. This year, the Paca Girlfriends Party raised in $160,000 (a record) for the non-profit organization and made the Paca Gardens a top destination for weddings and private events.
