Annual Gala Dinner – January 23, 2024

The Gala Dinner was held in the Grand dining Room of the Jekyll Island Hotel, and we had a wonderful turnout. The theme was the recent conservancy of the Tiffany Window. Taylor Davis, JIA Preservationist, and Tom Alexander, FOHJI Board Member, presented a summary of the conservancy process from the analysis of the window’s needs to the removal of the window from Faith Chapel to the work done at Mosaic’s Tack Room, and finally to the reinstallation of the window. The door prizes and the raffle of a Tiffany-inspired glass globe reflected this theme. Former FOHJI president Tom Pfaffenbach was remembered with a moment of silence. A big thank you to the Dinner Committee for their hard work that resulted in a successful event.
