Decked out with tall toy soldiers flanking the front gallery, a 20-foot tall Christmas tree in the home’s grand center hall and floral arrangements throughout, the beautiful Audubon Boulevard home of Mary Clare and Danny Conwill was decked out for the holidays and the “2015 Holiday Home Tour and Patron Party.”
Ralph Brennan Catering & Events provided food, accompanied by wine and spirits from Martin Wine Cellar.
Event Chairs were Elizabeth Bush and Adele Ralston. Approximately 450 attended the Patron Party, and 3,500 guests attended the main event.
Holiday Home Tour Homeowners included: Cynthia and Rich Ashman; Boo and Sid Charbonnet; W. Howard Moses; Ed and Laura Moise; Luna and Darryl Saunders; Dr. Troy Scroggins Jr.; and Dr. Michael L. Wheelis.
The event raised money to support the Preservation Resource Center’s mission of promoting the preservation, restoration and revitalization of New Orleans’ historic architecture and neighborhoods.
Funds raised by this event provide critical home repairs for elderly, low-income, disabled and veteran homeowners, transform blighted properties into family homes and train new homebuyers in purchasing and renovating a home of their own.
