It's all hands on deck at Ashland for major fundraiser

A casual visitor to the Henry Clay Estate this week might have no inkling, but behind the serene, historic façade, it's crunch time for the people who work there. Saturday is the Lawn Party, the biggest day in the Ashland Foundation's fund-raising calendar.
