Mill Run, Pa. – July 24 – Facebook users have one more week to enter a contest to win two tickets to Fallingwater’s 18th Annual Twilight Tour and Concert on Saturday, Aug. 24.

The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy is now accepting reservations for the Fallingwater Twilight Tour, concert and picnic dinner, sponsored by Huntington Bank. The event, held at Fallingwater near Mill Run, Pa., allows guests to enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres on the bridge outside the house and a leisurely, self-guided tour of the house. At twilight, a lantern-lit path will lead guests to a meadow, where they will enjoy live jazz featuring Brazilian jazz singer Kenia while dining on a gourmet picnic dinner prepared by Fallingwater’s chef.

For more information on how to win two tickets to the tour, visit and like Fallingwater’s Facebook page. The contest ends at 12 p.m. CET (6 a.m. EDT) on July 31.

“The Fallingwater Twilight Tour and dinner is a one-of-a-kind event at one of the world’s extraordinary houses,” said Lynda Waggoner, WPC vice president and director of Fallingwater. “So many of our guests can’t wait for this time of year, when they can watch night fall in the Laurel Highlands.”

The Twilight Tour begins at 6:30 p.m. and the picnic and jazz performance start at 8 p.m. Tickets are available by advance purchase only and are priced at $225 per person for non-members and $200 per person for members, $100 of which is tax-deductible.

“The Fallingwater Twilight Tour is an enchanting evening at one of the world’s most exceptional places. All of us at Huntington are honored to support the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy in their mission to carry on the legacy of Fallingwater – a symbol of people living in harmony with nature,” said Susie Shipley, Huntington President of Western Pennsylvania and Ohio Valley.

Proceeds from the event support the ongoing preservation of Fallingwater, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most acclaimed works and the “best all-time work of American architecture,” according to members of the American Institute of Architects.
