The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy (FLWBC) is holding a lecture and a benefit dinner in Northern California on Saturday, 5 June 2010.

The lecture will take place at the Marin County Civic Center, Board of Supervisors Chamber (Room 329), in San Rafael and will begin at 11 am. Lynda Waggoner, Director of Fallingwater and FLWBC board member, will discuss the process of nominating the Civic Center building for listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the particular merits that warrant the inclusion of the Civic Center (1957–1970) on this list.
Donation $10 (see event flier for details).

The same evening, people who are inclined to spend $1,000 ($650 of it tax deductible), can register for a private tour and dinner at the Walker House in Carmel. Details are available in the event brochure.
