This year’s version of the lush and extravagant fundraiser for Longue Vue House & Gardens, “Sentimental Journeys,” was held at the home and garden of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Bruno on the evening of Friday, April 4.  

This year’s theme was “Night in the Gardens of Spain” and event co-chairs Shaun Saer Duncan and Barkley Rafferty took full advantage of the idea with flamenco dancers, decor, auction items, cuisine and libations.

Longue Vue House & Gardens, a local historic and architectural jewel, is an eight-acre estate built by philanthropists Edith and Edgar Stern. Proceeds of “Sentimental Journeys: Night in the Gardens of Spain” supported Longue Vue’s educational programming for children and families in the Lucy C. Roussel Discovery Garden and maintaining the National Historic Landmark status of the greater estate.

Chef Michael Sichel of Galatoire’s masterminded Spanish-inspired cuisine, with Sucré and Perrier-Jouet being the driving forces behind desserts and libations. Two hundred seventy-five guests enjoyed a flamenco performance from husband and wife Lena and Chris Jacome, followed by Motown group The Essentials, as well an extensive silent art auction and animated live auction.
