Magic in the Moonlight

Presented by Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust

Joey Brown, Liz Brown and Jessie Haynes are honored and excited to be chairing 2018 Magic in the Moonlight presented by the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust.  This much-anticipated event will be held on Friday, October 12th under the majestic oaks and the twinkling lights of the New Orleans Botanical Garden.  Magic in the Moonlight is consistently lauded as one of the city’s most beautiful and most enjoyable fundraisers.

An elegant three course menu prepared by Chef Greg Sonnier of Gabrielle and Joel's Catering will be served under the stars on flower-filled, candlelit tables. There will be a fabulous auction of special items, music, and dancing.

Proceeds from this year’s Magic will be used to support the Outdoor Teaching Kitchen scheduled to open in the Fall of 2019.  The Outdoor Kitchen will host educational programs, cooking demonstrations, and workshops that teaches youth, their families, and the community about the health benefits of fresh produce,

To engage the next generation of supporters, there will be a ‘party within a party’ for the 40 and under crowd – the Moonlighters.  This group will also enjoy a cocktail hour, followed by a family style dinner and then everyone is invited to stay for cocktails and dancing!

We look forward to seeing you under the moonlight on October 12th!
