It's not too early to think about Fall activities. The Bayou Preservation Association's
Fall Gala will be held Wednesday, October 21, 2009.
Co-Chairs Cecily Burleson and Meredith Cocke
They have decided to Play it Again for its 2009 gala, tapping into the 2008 theme Casablanca: An Oasis on the Bayou. Last September’s event was canceled due to Hurricane Ike. Event co-chairs Cecily and Rick Burleson and Meredith and Fielding Cocke, along with honorary co-chairs Kristen J. Cannon and Brittany Zucker, are thrilled that Nijad and Zeina Fares have agreed to host the party at their River Oaks home. Expect a taste of Morocco with the food and décor, while you can “shake it like a sheik” on the dance floor. Tickets start at $200; for info, call 713-529-6443.
