Be transported back to a different age on Friday, January 24, at WYES’ inaugural “An Evening Inspired by Downton Abbey.” Co-chairs Ransdell and William Prieur, Margaret and Pierre B. Villere II and Thomas P. Westervelt promise a magical evening at the iconic St. Charles Avenue home of Mrs. Anne Montgomery and Mr. and Mrs. William Grace. Honorary chairs Minnie and Jimmy Coleman and Anne and Herschel Abbott will be among those dressed to the nines in the form of the roaring 1920s, and enjoying the splendor and the saga inspired by “Downton Abbey” while supporting WYES.

A global sensation shown in 200 countries with over 120 million viewers has been called “the most critically acclaimed show on television” and has inspired a renewed interest in period drama, just as WYES has inspired generations of viewers since 1957.

For more information and to purchase tickets, call 840-4894 or visit WYES.org.

Special thanks to Robin Cooper, Vice-President of Development, Aislinn Hinyup, Promotions Manager and Sharon Snowdy, Events Manager, of WYES.
