NEW ORLEANS - February 1, 2017 - On Friday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m., Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses (HGGHH) will hold its annual fundraiser, Amazing Grapes, at the Hermann-Grima house, 820 St. Louis Street. With ticket prices starting at $100, all proceeds from this event support HGGHH museums and education programs. Tickets for the event and auction are available for purchase here.

Chaired by Jenny D. Charpentier and Anne E. B. Long, this festive evening will feature a wine tasting provided by Bizou Wines and an exquisite buffet by Broussard's Restaurant.

Tickets start at $100 for young professionals, age 35 and younger, and go up to $200 for admission to both the Super Happy Bubbly Hour Patron Party and regular auction admission. Bulk tickets can also be purchased for large parties.
Guests can bid on an array of items in the silent auction such as rare and hard-to-find wines, gift certificates, hotel stays and even a painting by Hunt Slonem. Anyone can enjoy the convenience of bidding on the items here, prior to the event.

Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses implement creative, immersive, project-based and cross-curricular learning strategies to educate the community whether it is through field trips, day camps or in the classroom. The highest education standards for all grades can be met with a visit to the museums.

Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses
Built in 1831 by Samuel Hermann, a German-Jewish immigrant who quickly amassed (and lost) his fortune in the commodities market, the Hermann-Grima House, located at 820 Saint Louis Street, is one of the most significant residences in New Orleans. Generations of New Orleans' notable Grima family resided on the property from the 1840s until the 1920s. The Gallier House at 1132 Royal Street was built in 1860 by James Gallier, Jr., one of the most prominent architects of 19th-century New Orleans.

The Woman's Exchange purchased the Hermann-Grima House in 1924 and acquired the Gallier House in 1996. Their mission is to continue the legacy of the Christian Woman's Exchange, established in 1881, by restoring and maintaining the houses, and interpreting their contribution to and place in New Orleans. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses are a leading authority on historic preservation, offering educational, entertaining and interactive programming in the world-renowned French Quarter.
