The Holiday Home Tour and its Patron Party serve as fundraisers for the Preservation Resource Center, which supports the organization’s mission of preserving New Orleans’ historic architecture, neighborhoods and cultural identity through collaboration, empowerment and service to the community. The 2019 Patron Party was presented by Regions Bank, while the Holiday Home Tour was presented by McEnery Residential.
Robin and Allan Kanner’s beautiful 1922 Mediterranean Revival home welcomed the 350 Patron Party attendees. Glenn Vatshell of Palate New Orleans decorated the venue. David Torkanowsky performed on the piano.
Incredible catering provided by Palate New Orleans included oyster maque choux, tuna sashimi, lump crab cakes, walnut gougeres, parmesan pork tenderloin, cassoulet beans, shrimp dijonnaise, chicken saltimbocca, raspberry pavlova and holiday cookies. Chanukah-inspired favorites included smoked salmon, latkes, savory rugelach, sweet and sour brisket and noodle kugel.
The Patron Party was chaired by Martine Chaisson Linares and Lorey Flick. The Holiday Home Tour was chaired by Jenny Longwell and Courtney Lane.
