Bouncing Back After Brain Injury

The inaugural Friends of BIALA benefit supported recovery services for brain and spinal injuries.

Hostess and Event Chair Kathleen Waring, Karasene, William Vollenweider and Dr. Phyllis Waring

 

The State Street home of Kathleen and Ben Waring transformed into an indoor garden, complete with garlands entwined with white lights and handcrafted papier mâché flowers on loan from Royal Artists and large white Japanese paper lanterns for the intimate inaugural “Friends of BIALA, Philanthropic Leadership Circle" benefit.

This dedicated community of partners engage in compassionate support of brain and spinal cord injury survivors in Louisiana through a focused investment of philanthropy, leadership and volunteerism.

A dinner of marinated steak tips and marinated chicken was prepared by Mr. Ed’s Oyster Bar and Fish House, accompanied by a casserole donated by Laura Arrowood Catering and a salad contributed by Langenstein’s. Dessert of cake, fresh strawberries and whipped cream was provided by hosts Kathleen and Ben Waring. Lula Distillery provided a selection of their own line of spirits, and wine was provided by a private donor.

Drag Queens Kitty D’Litter and the Ladies of Petronius ambled through the various rooms singing show tunes. Jake Thomas of AfterDark Productions managed the entertainers and volunteered other services.

Kathleen Waring, Nicole Marquez and Kathleen Mulvihill served as Event Chairs.
