Anchor in the Storm
Anchor in the Storm, a fundraiser benefitting the Monroe Symphony Orchestra, was held at the home of Ileta Rutherford on May 13. This year’s annual fundraiser, or “friendraiser,” was unique in that a portion of the proceeds benefitted the United Way of Northeast Louisiana’s Flood Response and Recovery Fund. The party was held on the lawn where guests mingled on the bayou and toured the fantastic home. Mark Smith provided eats from his food truck, the “Wayneabago” while attendees danced to the music of Josh Madden and a jazz trio. A favorite of the evening were beignets and coffee, provided by Castor and Chicory.
