I Am Waters Foundation hosted the Inaugural New Orleans Supermodel Luncheon on April 21, 2016 at the Audubon Tea Room. A VIP dinner preceded the event at The Pelican Club. The luncheon raised necessary funds to provide physical and spiritual hydration to America’s homeless men, women, children and veterans through special branded bottles of lifesaving water with words of inspiration, including “HOPE,” “LOVE,” “PEACE” and “DREAM.”

The luncheon provided an opportunity to meet I Am Waters ambassadors and supermodels Crystle Stewart, former Miss Texas USA and Miss USA winner; Kelly Emberg, who began her career as a model after being scouted by John Casablancas; Kara Young, an international supermodel, philanthropist and entrepreneur; and Kim Charlton, winner of a beauty contest with a top New York modeling agency. Event chairs were Terri Havens, Anne Redd and Tara Shaw. Jim Kelly, Executive Director at Covenant House, and David Bottner, Executive Director at New Orleans Mission, delivered remarks.

Robin Barnes opened the event with a performance of the national anthem. Joey Hunter, former co-president of American international modeling agency Ford Model Management, moderated the panel of supermodels.

The event hosted more than 100 attendees and raised more than $44,000.
