The Foundation for Historical Louisiana (FHL) is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year by hosting its annual fundraising for preservation with "A Golden Gala" at the Old Governor’s Mansion, on the exact day of its founding. Committing to the gilded theme, the evening will feature gold decor and attire and a bit of bubbly for guests to sip on (for the good of the theme!) Local act Phat Hat serves up the tunes, and a silent auction with more than fifty items is open for perusal and bidding. And don't worry—food is not forgotten. Nourishment will be provided by Baton Rouge restaurants, caterers, and distributors. 7 pm at the Old Governors' Mansion. $100 for FHL members; $125 for non-members; $50 for guests under the age of thirty-five. Ticket purchase includes an FHL membership. (225) 387-2464 or fhl.org.
