New Orleanians gathered for the sake of preservation and restoration at the 35th annual “Julia Jump” on Friday, March 23. Co-chairs Mandi Frischhertz and Carol Starr along with Preservation Resource Center President Anne Redd assisted in creating the most successful year in “Julia Jump” history.

Over 30 food venders, including Dragos, which served crab cakes while displaying the March Madness games, served food to the largest “Julia Jump” crowd in the French Market. Other local venders included Lucky Dog, Café Du Monde, Mother’s, The Kupcake Factory, Whole Foods Market and Southern Candy Makers.

Julia Jumpers enjoyed musical entertainment provided by Deacon John and Clockwork Elvis.

One lucky raffle winner won a pair of beautiful Wellington & Co. earrings. The silent auction featured a lavish amount of luxurious items, such as a ride in the Krewe of Tucks parade, Sugar Bowl tickets, spa services and a variety of artwork.

Since 1974 The Preservation Resource Center has been a New Orleans nonprofit organization that dedicates itself to the preservation, restoration and revitalization of architecture and neighborhoods around the city.
