Keeping House

“Sunset Garden Gala” provided essential funds for Beauregard-Keyes Historic House and Garden.

True to name, the “Sunset Garden Gala” brought 350 guests to gather in the flower and greenery-filled courtyard at the Beauregard-Keyes Historic House and Garden. All of the funds raised at this year’s gala have been devoted to a multi-year drainage and re-grading project to be completed this September. Poor drainage on the property has compromised brick foundations by directing storm run off towards the house and its dependencies, so contributors to the gala literally helped keep the beautiful house standing.

The Patron Party was held in the Parterre Garden immediately preceding the gala. Brenda and Michael Moffit and Jenny and James Cole served as Event Chairs.

Food was donated by The Court of Two Sisters, Croissant d’Or, Dickie Brennan & Co., Food Art, Jacques-Imo’s, Joel’s Catering, Louisiana Fresh, Matassa’s, Martin Wine Cellar, Messina’s Catering, Mona Lisa, Palate New Orleans, Patti Constantine’s Designs in Catering, Pigeon Caterers and Swiss Bakery.

Beverages were provided by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, Martin Wine Cellar, Grand Krewe and Verti Marte.

Deacon John and the Ivories provided the music, as they have done for the past three galas.

The auction was filled with art and New Orleans experiences, including hotel stays, visits to cultural organizations such as HNOC and Longue Vue and meals at local restaurants.
