Pensacola, FL – The Pensacola Symphony Orchestra Guild invites the community to its signature fundraiser, the 32nd annual Magnolias & White Linen Luncheon.
 
The highly anticipated event is Wednesday, March 7, at downtown’s New World Landing, 600 S. Palafox St. Luncheon is at 11:30 a.m., doors open at 10:30 a.m.
 
Tickets are $50, with proceeds going to support the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra, which is entering its 91st season. Sponsorships are still available.
 
This year’s Magnolias & White Linen guest speaker is Julia Reed, the author of several books who has also been writer and editor for the likes of Vogue, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Elle Décor and Garden & Gun.
 
Reed’s books include “One Man’s Folly: The Exceptional Houses of Furlow Gatewood,” “Julia Reed’s South: Spirited Entertaining and High-Style Fun All Year Long,” “The House on First Street: My New Orleans Story,” “Queen of the Turtle Derby and Other Southern Phenomena” and “But Mama Always Put Vodka in Her Sangria! Adventures in Eating, Drinking and Making Merry.”
 
Born in Greenville, Miss., Reed now calls New Orleans home.
 
“Julia was a big hit at our show!” said Andrew Gottler of the 2016 Bluegrass Trust Antiques & Garden Show in Lexington, Ky. “Her lecture was sold out, and we heard nothing but praise for her lecture. The way Julia shares her experiences to the audience is entertaining and hilarious. She was wonderful to have as our guest and keynote speaker.”
 
The fun afternoon includes a Silent Auction and Door Prizes.
