The New Orleans Botanical Garden’s “Magic in the Moonlight” has become one of the most prestigious fundraisers in the city. Co-Chairs Margo DuBos and Juli Miller Hart, Inaugural Moonlighter Committee Member Brooke Levy, President of the Board Muffin Balart and Vincent Giardina representing Presenting Sponsor Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust will welcome you to this alfresco dinner in the Botanical Garden on Friday, October 13.
In celebration of the city’s 300th anniversary, renowned chef John Folse will recreate the historical banquet given by Prince de Condé in honor of King Louis XIV at Chateau de Chantilly, France. The dinner will be presented in honor of the Duke of Orleans, who will be in attendance. Additionally, there will be a “party within a party” for the 45 and younger set – the Moonlighters – complete with cocktails, dinner and dancing with the other guests.
Proceeds this year will go to the Botanical Garden Foundation, which is raising money for the Outdoor Teaching Garden in the vegetable and herb garden. For tickets, call City Park at 483-9386.
