Landa Nights Event Celebrates Landmark Anniversary

By Jake Gaines         Photography by Greg Harrison

THE SCENE:  On the gorgeous grounds of Landa Library, guests gathered to celebrate and support the 10th anniversary Landa Nights event, with the theme of Chiaroscuro, benefiting Landa Gardens Conservancy. The Conservancy maintains and beautifies the nearly-five acre grounds upon which the library sits providing a magical setting where friends and families have gathered for decades.

THE VIBE: The theme of the evening was shadows and lights. Robert Maxim, a San Antonio-based commercial photographer was commissioned to photograph the Landa Library to capture images that related to the theme of the evening. The two framed photographs, Landa Sunrise and Landa Sunset were sold at the silent auction and brought in a record amount for the library. The event was catered by Page Barteau Caterers, Inc. Holly Besing created the conceptual design for the centerpieces which were then implemented by HEB’s floral department as an in-kind contribution. Aaron Prado Quartet performed live entertainment for the evening.

THE CAUSE: Colleen Casey and Ana Montoya chaired the event. The Presenting Sponsor for the evening gala was Valero, with other top sponsors including the John and Florence Newman Foundation and South Texas Money Management. In fact, a record number of guests attended at the Presenting Sponsor level. The Landa Gardens Conservancy is a non-profit organization dedicated to beautifying and maintaining the gardens, walkways and playgrounds at Landa Library.
