Full Details

Join us for martinis, delicious hors d'oeuvres, and dancing on a mountainside terrace under the stars.   Gaze out across Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley beyond from the historic O’Donnell House and Gardens, located high above the Palm Springs Art Museum. Once the highest hillside home in the valley, the Ojo Del Desierto, or Eye of the Desert, was designed by architect William Charles Tanner and built for the fabulously wealthy Thomas O’Donnell in 1925. 

O’Donnell carefully perched the estate to allow the most spectacular view of the entire valley. Meticulously restored and listed in the National Register of Historic Sites, the O’Donnell House features original and rare art tile floors and bathroom tiles hand manufactured by Batchelder, Malibu, Taylor, S&S and Gladding McBean. The wrought-iron gates and grilles were famous for their intricacy and craftsmanship. The house boasts redwood ceilings, antique furnishings, and gorgeous period appointments.  An evening to remember. Catering by LuLu California Bistro.

Benefiting the Palm Springs Historical Society and Desert AIDS Project.
