Co-Chairs Anne and William Summerour


The 31st annual “Fall Affair” brought more than 200 patrons to Commander’s Palace to support the Garden District Association. Guests included lots of new young faces in the crowd and many new neighbors along with the long-term neighbors and supporters of the association. Lally Brennan, Ti Martin and chef Tory McPhail mingled throughout the event.

The evening began with cocktails on the patio, followed by dinner in the Main Dining Room and the Garden Room. The menu received many compliments, and included Commander’s Romaine Salad, Veal Osso Bucco, Citrus Flan and wine pairings. The centerpieces by Steve Baker Designs matched the invitation and program with miniature birds of paradise as the motif.

Johnny Parker, the great one-man jazz band, performed and entertained.

“Fall Affair” Co-Chairs were Sue Peters, Isabel and Moye Sanders and Anne and William Summerour.
