Celebrating Together, Safely

We can’t wait to socialize in person again, and we want to create an atmosphere that feels safe and welcoming for all attendees. All food and drink will be served outside under a tent, with heat lamps if the weather requires it, and all catering staff will be vaccinated and masked. 


Per Ardrossan’s guidelines, proof of vaccination is required to attend our garden party. You may email us a copy of your vaccination card in advance or bring a physical copy or photo on your phone to present to staff at check-in. Any guest testing positive for COVID-19 or exhibiting symptoms regardless of vaccination status should not attend.


Additionally, Girls First will adhere to any COVID-19 regulations and guidelines in place at the time of the event, and adjust requirements as needed to help make this event the safest experience possible for our guests, staff and volunteers.

Girls First gratefully acknowledges the support of individuals and corporations in our region who share our vision and values.

About Ardrossan

Built in 1912 by Colonel Robert Leaming Montgomery and Charlotte Hope Binney Tyler Montgomery, this Georgian mansion has become an icon of the Main Line, and features forty-five rooms, 13-foot high ceilings, and a dining room with accommodations for thirty. Among the family portraits that decorate the walls are some painted by Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Sully, and Augustus John. 

The estate was also home to Helen Hope Montgomery Scott, a socialite and philanthropist who was famously the inspiration for the main character in the films The Philadelphia Story and High Society, and Mary Binney Montgomery Wheeler, whose celebrated artistic talents included photography, dance, and music, including performing as a soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
