Casa del Francisco Parties of Note Provides Evening of Southwestern Delight

PHOENIX – Drs. Linda and Dan Francisco welcomed an intimate group of 40 guests into their beautiful Hacienda-style home on May 3rd for a sold out Parties of Note. From the hand-carved doors in the entryway to the infinity edge pool, the Latin inspired architectural designs and furnishings delighted guests at every turn.

The home’s elevated perch in Paradise Valley offered stunning views of Praying Monk to the east and the Phoenix skyline to the west.

As the sun set, guests were entertained by a Phoenix Symphony quartet comprised of Leslie Anderegg, Acting Assistant Principal Violin; Mark Deatherage, Acting Principal Viola; Tessa Gotman, Second Violin and Melita Hunsinger, Principal Cello, who played a beautiful set featuring Latin-inspired classics. A sumptuous dinner and dessert complemented the evening of southwestern delight.

Now in its seventh season, Parties of Note is a one-of-a-kind program offering a unique opportunity to spend an evening in an intimate setting with Symphony musicians and friends, while enjoying a gourmet meal in some of the Valley's finest homes.
