Harbour Island home to host Legacy Trust Home Tour Benefactor Reception


The Harbour Island home of Ron and Hilah Autrey will host this year’s “Benefactor Reception” to kick off the 7th Annual Legacy Trust Ponte Vedra Beach Home and Art Tour.

To be held Friday, April 7 from 6 to 8 p.m., the reception will afford guests an opportunity to view the Autreys’ 11,000 square-foot Intracoastal home designed by architect Richard Skinner while meeting many of the artists whose works will be on display throughout the April 8 tour. The Autreys’ waterfront home with Intracoastal Waterway views will also serve as the backdrop for a reception featuring passed hors d’oeuvres, an open bar and live entertainment.

The Autreys are Jacksonville natives and longtime supporters of the arts. Ron Autrey is chairman of the board of Miller Electric, and both he and his wife have served on numerous boards of local organizations, including the United Way, Cummer Museum, Jacksonville University, the Jax Chamber of Commerce and the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach.

Tickets for the Benefactor reception are $120 for cultural center members and $130 for non-members through March 3, when the price will increase. Benefactor tickets also include admission to the April 8 Legacy Trust Ponte Vedra Beach Home and Art Tour, providing access to five local homes that will be available for tours.

Proceeds from the Benefactor reception and home tour benefit the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach. For tickets or more information, visit www.ccpvb.org or call (904) 280-0614 x 205.
