Real Estate Agent with The Paul Kaplan Group, Inc

This weekend, I'm proud to be a sponsor of Wexler Weekend, celebrating the life and work of Donald Wexler, FAIA.  Tickets are still available for the event http://www.paulkaplanrealtor.com/WexlerWeekend.php

The tribute to Wexler, sponsored by the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation, will kick off on Friday, Jan. 22, with a 7:30 p.m. screening of the film "Journeyman Architect: The Life and Work of Donald Wexler." A special question and answer session with the famed architect will follow.

The festivities continue on Saturday, Jan 23, Don Wexler's 84th birthday, with a 9 a.m. champagne jazz brunch at Leon's Bar & Grill at the Wexler-designed Indian Canyons Golf Resort. In addition, City Council member Ginny Foat will honor Wexler with a special proclamation -- and the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation will present a $1,000 check to the Palm Springs High School Jazz Band. Other Saturday activities will include tours of Wexler-designed celebrity homes and a 6 p.m. fundraiser at the Wexler-designed Leff-Florsheim House.

The weekend will wrap up on Sunday, Jan. 24 with "Steel Some Time" from 10 a.m. to noon, at several of the famous Wexler steel homes which will be open for viewing in the Racquet Club estates neighborhood. Following the tour, author Patrick McGrew will be available for a special 3 p.m. book signing of the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation's forthcoming book "Donald Wexler: Architect" at Just Fabulous, 515 N. Palm Canyon Drive. For more information, visit www.pspreservationfoundation.org.
