The Emerald Necklace Conservancy has been involved in sustaining and restoring the beautiful string of parks and waterways of Boston stretching from the Charles River to Dorcester known as the “Emerald Necklace” for over a decade. Person + Killian Photography was delighted to be invited to photograph the event for The Catered Affair, whose owner Holly Safford sits as one of the Chairs for the Party in the Park event. The Catered Affair team has been hard at work under the direction and design of executive chef Shane O’Neill to prepare the menu for this event for over 700 guests.

This year’s luncheon featured remarks from the Chairs, Mayor Menino and Governor Michael Dukakis, as well as a presentation of the Justine Mee Liff Spirit Award to Malcolm Rogers of Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. With great food, great company, and a lot of hard work for a great cause, this luncheon truly was “the Spring event of the year in Boston”!
