Onna and Alan Gallagher’s beautiful, course-side home on Bayou Desiard Country Club provided a picturesque setting for “Pork and Pearls,” a fundraiser for the Monroe Symphony Orchestra held May 29. Though Code Blue and the Flatliner had to forego their appearance due to the weather, a little rain couldn’t stop the party from going on inside.

Patrons weren’t disappointed with the spread, either. Roasted pork and grilled oysters served as the centerpiece of a lavish spread, complete with wine and signature cocktails. Artist Caroline Youngblood was on hand, too, showcasing works from her renowned series of oyster paintings.

Organizers were thrilled with the success of Pork and Pearls, which was sponsored by Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial, Nonna, Marsala Beverage and BayouLife.
