Hosts Christian and Deirdre Hooper

The music of Carl LeBlanc serenaded guests as they approached the front walk of Deirdre and Christian Hooper’s St. Charles Avenue home for the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses Society Gala.

The Hoopers’ home provided a beautiful backdrop for the evening, accented with floral arrangements by Dunn & Sonnier Antiques and Flowers. The Garden District Trio performed jazz tunes indoors as guests dined on delicious catering by Ralph Brennan Catering & Events.

Erica and James Reiss and Sheridan and Liam Grace served as event co-chairs.

The event honored the museums’ Heritage Circle and Leadership Circle donors, which play a crucial role in maintaining the quality and expanding educational programs at the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses. Approximately 125 guests attended the 2015 gala.
