Dinner Dates

Supporters of the Memorial Park Conservancy hit the trails and headed to the Forest Club for the organization’s annual Picnic for the Park event. Organic, free-flowing florals and a menu of comfort-food classics spoke to fun-loving and laid-back nature of the event, which also championed the progress of Memorial Park’s master-planned makeover. Meanwhile, an intimate dinner catered by Swift + Company toasted Rienzi’s 20th year as a part of the MFAH. Rienzi Society members contributed nearly a quarter-million dollars toward the acquisition of two 18th-century antiques.
