The Friends of Bulloch Hall are hosting an evening party and fundraiser on the grounds at Bulloch Hall on Friday, August 16, at 8 p.m.

Moonlight and Martinis will feature live music, a glowing full moon, martinis, and light appetizers in an outdoor setting. Drink offerings will include a variety of martinis, beer and wine, along with non-alcoholic beverages.

Attendees can relax and enjoy live music by Jazz By Two, sip drinks and take in a garden exhibit of local artists’ works. Guests can then stroll over to Bulloch Hall for a self-guided candlelight tour of the summer exhibit about President Teddy Roosevelt’s trip to Roswell in 1905. 

“We had a great time at this event last year,” said Jenny Goldemund, assistant site coordinator at Bulloch Hall. “People enjoyed the garden, the tour of the house, the full moon, the live music, and the fantastic drinks and food. It was one of the best events we’ve done.”

Bulloch Hall was completed in 1839 by James Stephens Bulloch and Martha Stewart Bulloch of Savannah. Bulloch Hall is the home where President Teddy Roosevelt’s mother, Mittie Bulloch, James’ and Martha’s daughter, grew up and where she married Theodore Roosevelt Sr. in 1853.

Bulloch Hall offers educational programs and special events throughout the year. More information about Bulloch Hall’s history, tours and events are available at

Reservations are $40 per person and include two drink tickets. Additional drink tickets are $10. Call 770-992-1731, ext. 2, for information or visit to purchase tickets online.
