On 10 February 2011, the 8th Marquess Townshend will be visiting Palm Beach to serve as guest of honor at a reception hosted by noted interior designer William R. Eubanks to benefit American Friends of British Art. The event will take place at the William R. Eubanks design showroom at 340 Worth Avenue. An RSVP is required and admission to the event is $100 donation. Lord Townshend serves as the charity’s patron and will be in Palm Beach to raise awareness for the charity and to meet privately with contributors to the charity’s Endowment Campaign. Lord Townshend is the guardian of a spectacular private art collection acquired over several centuries by his noble ancestors, and has also been actively involved in the conservation of his local parish church.
