A Timeless Affair: Beautiful Beasts

| November 20, 2018 | Parties

Fernbank Museum hosted its annual black-tie gala with A Timeless Affair: Beautiful Beasts.

THE PARTY Fernbank Museum of Natural History’s Dinosaur Plaza and Museum Great Hall were swathed in jewel-tone greens and blues thanks to the talents of Tony Brewer & Company. Nearly 450 guests attended the sunset cocktail hour and seated dinner, which featured delectable menu items such as kale salads with candied Georgia pecans; a thyme and tangerine marinated chicken breast; and peppercorn crusted filet of beef—all thanks to Bold Catering & Design. Atlanta Beat gave an energetic live performance that pulled guests from their seats and onto the dance floor. THE GUESTS Honorary chairs Studie and Zach Young; event chairs Adrienne and Todd Henningsen, and Kelly and Rusty Rodts; Catherine and Mark McGahan THE HIGHLIGHTS The night’s pinnacle was certainly the live and silent auctions, which left galagoers with tickets to luxe locations like Sea Island, Tanzania, France, Scotland, Italy and, not to mention, a private island resort in the Bahamas. The gala had a successful ending, having raised $785,000 to further Fernbank’s educational mission. -Irinia Talty
