Chaired by Andrea Frischhertz and Ann Heslin, this year’s “Lark in the Park” presented by Friends of City Park to benefit the City Park Carousel promises to be an exciting ride. With a patron party at 7 p.m. and gala at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 14, the evening should be a magical one – all the better to wind down from this year’s late Mardi Gras.

Presented by Friends of City Park, this year’s gala will be also hosted by Friends of City Park Board President Mary Johnson, board member Jackie Palumbo and honorary chairs Mr. and Mrs. Beau Bassich, who invite patrons and special guests to join them at the Pavilion of Two Sisters for entertainment by Anais St. John, hors d’oeuvres by Tableau and specialty libations from Hotel Monteleone.

 The gala will be held in the New Orleans Botanical Gardens promptly at 8 p.m., immediately following the patron party, where local favorite Flow Tribe will be playing, and edibles and cocktails from over 40 of the city’s top restaurants, as well as an exciting live auction, will add to the entertainment. At the event, guests will be able to contribute directly to the restoration of the carousel.

For more information and to purchase tickets, please call 483-9376 or visit FriendsOfCityPark.com/events.htm.

Special thanks to Stephanie Kaston Gutierrez of City Park.
