Join us for a lovely afternoon in support of MOMMAS House at the historic Mill Neck Manor, featuring a discussion with New York Times Best Selling author J. Courtney Sullivan. Tickets $60 each. A tour of the Manor House will be available for a nominal donation.
J. Courtney Sullivan is the New York Times best-selling author of the novels The Engagements, Maine and Commencement. Maine was named a 2011 Time magazine Best Book of the Year and a Washington Post Notable Book. The Engagements was one of People Magazine's Top Ten Books of 2013 and an Irish Times Best Book of the Year. Her newest novel, Saints for All Occasions, is a sweeping, unforgettable novel about the hope, sacrifice, and love between two Irish-immigrant sisters and the secret that drives them apart.
Mill Neck Manor, located on the prestigious North Shore of Long Island, is a majestic Tudor Revival mansion set on an 86-acre scenic estate overlooking the Long Island Sound. The mansion, once called Sefton Manor, was owned by Robert Leftwich Dodge and his wife, the cosmetics heiress Lillian Sefton Dodge.
In 1949, Lutheran Friends of the Deaf, the founding group of the Mill Neck Family of Organizations, purchased the property from Mrs. Dodge. Today, Mill Neck Manor and all of the surrounding properties on the historic grounds continue to form the Mill Neck Family of Organizations' campus.
