The “Autumn Affair” was a festive, casually elegant affair at the home of Gabe and Karen Corchiani, held on the veranda and patios overlooking beautifully landscaped grounds.

Gala Chairs were Holley Haag, Elesha Kelleher, Lucy Thomas and Ashley Price Swanson. Patron Party hosts were Gabe and Karen Corchiani.

Fare was provided by café b’s chef Mike Uddo and Broussard’s Marv Ammari and Chris Yeaza. Martin Wine Cellar provided libations.

Auction highlights included artwork by Julie Denechaud Gahagan, a chef’s dinner at Chateau du Lac, Pelicans suite tickets, a signed flag from Zurich Golf Classic, Saints tickets and a private theatre screening party donated by the Theatres at Canal Place.

Funds raised went towards beautifying and landscaping public green spaces in Jefferson Parish.
