The elegant dining rooms of Commander’s Palace, dotted with blue hydrangeas, framed the 30th annual benefit for the Garden District Association, which raised funds for operations including zoning, quality of life issues and beautification projects.

The event began with a party for benefactors and supporters on the patio featuring cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. This preceded the main event, which featured a three-course meal by chef Tory McPhail. The menu featured a blue crab, cauliflower and brie bisque, black skillet seared redfish, and a pear and warm molasses crumble cake to finish. A diverse selection of wines were available for pairing. The Joe Simon Jazz Trio played throughout the cocktail hour and dinner.
Event chairs were Bobby and Beth Hassinger and Patti and Tommy Jahncke.
