Houses With History


A Patron Party opened the PRC’s 42nd annual weekend tour of Garden District homes. By Shelby Simon

One of the largest fundraisers for the Preservation Resource Center, the “Holiday Home Tour Patron Party” kicked off with a lavish cocktail reception at the historic Garden District home of Liz and Terry Creel, complete with an open bar, live music and local cuisine. New Orleans Banjos +2 led by Joan Pizzolato (“the Queen of New Orleans banjo” according to Spud McConnell), Johnny Parker and more of New Orleans’ top traditional Dixieland Jazz artists provided musical entertainment. Pigéon Caterers provided a host of delectable bites, including coconut beer-battered Gulf shrimp with Creole orange horseradish sauce, fried green tomato with spiced cornmeal coating and Creole aioli, a charcuterie station and a grits bar including Southern-style, barbecue shrimp, andouille and more. Kristin Van Hook Moore and Mary Martin Roth served as Patron Party Chairs. “Holiday Home Tour” Chairs were Elizabeth Harper Emmett and Ashley Payne Gonzalez. Approximately 300 patrons attended the event. n
