The third annual Games in the Gardens at Longue Vue House & Gardens was hosted by the Friends of Longue Vue. The beautiful evening, with special illumination giving the Shipman-designed landscape a vibrant glow, raised funds for Longue Vue’s Discovery Garden renewal for children’s education.

Guests enthusiastically engaged in croquet, table tennis, chipping, badminton, and pickleball and tried their luck on a seasonal raffle, including a hidden pair of pearl earrings donated by Diamonds Direct. Catering was by Cottage Catering, with specialty cocktails courtesy of Sazerac Company and music by Harry Hardin and the Electric Yat Quartet.
