A unique and imaginative Kingsmill home was the surprise venue provided by Liz Moore & Associates for a delightful Encore Affair fundraiser on May 11, 2017. - "Mark Twain & the Magnificent Mystery House."

Actor Ryan Clemens, a Twain descendant attired as the 70-year-old humorist, entertained the 60 guests with droll stories and witty comments as well as fielded impromptu questions about his remarkable life. At the beginning of the evening, guests were treated to a delicious wine and buffet dinner along with tours of the remarkable home which embodied soaring ceilings, fieldstone and stunning redwood interiors, described by Tim Parker, listing realtor with Liz Moore & Associates. Then "Mr. Twain" was introduced by Paul Try, League President, who had arranged the event, supported by several League members.

Encore Affairs is the League's most popular fundraiser providing a diverse series of parties and special events that benefit the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra.
