‘Downton Abbey’ on Masterpiece and the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation are natural companions. At the heart of the series is the story of stewardship of a beloved estate. Like the Crawley family, the RVPF has dedicated their efforts to the preservation and stewardship of the historic, natural, and cultural resources that can be found throughout the Roanoke Valley. Since its inception in 1988, RVPF’s consistent involvement and advocacy has resulted in increased public awareness and successful preservation projects throughout the Valley.
Tickets for the event are only $25 and may be purchased on-line at www.roanokepreservation.org or www.rvpfpremiereparty.eventbrite.com. All proceeds benefit the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation. ‘Downton Abbey’ on Masterpiece is broadcast by Blue Ridge PBS.
