Ann and Bubba Turner’s waterfront home on Davis Islands, which has been in the family for generations, provided a spectacular backdrop for the Junior League of Tampa Sustainers Spring Party on April 24.
With a guitarist playing and the sun setting over Bayshore, about 100 guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers while getting reacquainted with old friends. Sustainer president Ruth Giordano greeted guests as Metro Chefs catering set up a buffet. The menu included pork marbella with dried fruits, Parmesan-crusted chicken on a bed of spicy kale, roasted vegetables and a tomato salad on a bed of mixed greens with homemade Thousand Island dressing. For dessert there was croissant bread pudding with caramel sauce, strawberry shortcake and a Black Russian bundt cake.
The event was chaired by Susan Kynes Baldwin who was assisted by hostesses Becky Charles, Hilary Davis, Anne DePury, Susan Gage, Cindy Hadlow and Gwyn Schabacker.
