The Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses Society threw a cocktail party to acknowledge and thank their most dedicated donors on the evening of Thursday, November 14, at the Vieux Carré historic house of Caroline and Murray Calhoun.
Local pianist Jeffrey Pounds played for the entertainment of the guests and event co-chairs Jane Scott Hodges and Caroline Ferguson while they enjoyed edibles from Ralph Brennan’s Catering and Events. Flowers were arranged by event co-chair Pam Georges Donigeux and featured freesia, roses, tulips and oriental lilies.
The annual event honored the Heritage Circle and Leadership Circle donors of the Historic Houses Society, the annual fund drive of the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses, widely considered gems in the architectural and cultural landscape of the Vieux Carré. All proceeds of the evening went to funding educational programming and secure access to our historic properties for future generations.
