Picture yourself back in 1932 at Pinewood Estate in Lake Wales, the winter retreat of Charles Austin Buck, president of Bethlehem Steel. Every year his family gathers in Florida to create a magical experience for all, especially Buck’s four young grandchildren.

They have also extended an invitation to some other friends who have introduced the Buck family to their shared passion for jazz. Their theme for this season is “Merry and Bright.”
