Le Marché des Fêtes is a unique holiday boutique benefiting the historic Pitot House, home of the Louisiana Landmarks Society on Bayou St. John.
Shoppers are invited to visit with Papa Noël, groove to guitarist John Rankin, shop for one-of-a-kind handmade art and accessories and Mignon Faget jewelry, purchase great books autographed by their favorite New Orleans authors, munch on tasty local and exotic treats, and much more.
With home and garden gifts and holiday decorations galore, the Pitot House lawn will be a magical market land for one delightful day.
Masqueraid / Re-Bridge’s 2nd Annual Fundraising Gala will be held
Saturday, December 1, 2012 at the home of Eric Hess and Judge Frank
Thaxton III, retired at 1001 Moss Street.
This year will be a masked cocktail affair! Guests will gather to
support the rehabilitation of two historic bridges, while enjoying an
open bar featuring two exclusive Re-Bridge drinks, gourmet bites from
SoBou, and dancing to a master DJ set of tunes from the 70s to today.
Masqueraid is designed to raise awareness and funds for
rehabilitating the Magnolia and Walter Parker Memorial (aka Dumaine)
Bridges that cross Bayou St. John, a community effort led by the
Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association in collaboration with the
Re-Bridge organization. The Magnolia Bridge is considered the oldest
in New Orleans and was recently named one of Louisiana Landmarks
Society’s New Orleans Nine..
Masqueraid is open to the public (cocktail attire). All monies
raised for Re-Bridge are under FSJNA?s charitable 501c3 status. The
tickets are $100 each with all proceeds going to Re-Bridge to raise
matching funds for city and state funding. SoBou has graciously
donated the cuisine.
Masqueraid will also include five incredible raffle items for fans
of the arts, fashion, dining, drinking, and sports. Get your tickets
