Deemed by organizers as the Vieux Carré Property Owners, Residents & Associates, Inc.’s most successful gala ever, the “75th Diamond Anniversary Gala” made the historic Cabildo in Jackson Square sparkle on September 28. Co-chaired by Brenda and Michael Moffitt, the gala began at 7 in the evening, with a patron party held at Dickie Brennan’s new hotspot, Tableau, immediately before. Cuisine and libations for the main event were provided by a wide variety of New Orleans restaurants and bars, from Bayona to Mojito’s. Leah Chase Kamato and band lit up the stage, while local favorite Bryan Batt served as celebrity auctioneer and “Saturday Night Live” cast member Darrell Hammond performed a comedy sketch.

The silent and live auctions were both star-studded, featuring items such as a Friend & Company brooch, local hotel getaways and 10 days for 10 people in Provence, France. Proceeds from this event go to preserving the Vieux Carré as a national treasure, maintaining its quaint and distinctive character, and toward achieving in that historic, living neighborhood a quality of life which can be enjoyed by residents, fellow citizens, local businesses and visitors.
