On October 11, the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.) will host a cocktail reception and fundraiser for Friends of Guy Mason, the nonprofit group that helps maintain the Guy Mason Recreation Center (3600 Calvert St.).

Although Guy Mason is a city-run facility, Friends of Guy Mason augments what the government’s stretched budget is able to provide. In the past, the group has maintained the center’s tree canopy and fragrance garden; installed new playground equipment; and led community cleanup days. “We promise to continue to be strong advocates for the interests of students, faculty, and guests inside the building as well as all the outdoor users,” writes FOGM president Dan Melman in a statement to Glover Parkers. “As we build upon our past successes, we ask you to support us in our efforts to steward and improve our local treasure. We cannot do it without you.”

The October 11 event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets cost $60 each and can be purchased at the Friends of Guy Mason website.
