The Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse for Greater New Orleans held its third annual “Carnivale Patron Party” at the Columns Hotel on October 17th. The Carnival-themed evening featured an open bar, entertainment, circus acts and an auction. Musical entertainment was provided by Jay, Ray and Gee, and the circus acts featured a clown, stilt walker, ringmaster, a contortionist and a juggler.

Jennifer Bernard-Allen and Carey Menasco hosted the evening as patron party co-chairs, along with committee co-chairs, president of the New Orleans Saints and the New Orleans Pelicans, Dennis Lauscha and his wife Jennifer. The “Carnivale Patron Party” raised money for the city-wide school education prevention initiative, “Too Good for Drugs,” and towards CADA’s mission to prevent the abuse of alcohol, drugs and other addictive substances, and to promote healthy and safe individuals, families and communities throughout Greater New Orleans.

Auction highlights included a pair of 50-yard-line club level Saints game tickets, an autographed Sports Illustrated cover featuring Drew Brees, and an artist-remarqued giclée by Galerie d’Art Francais called “One Seat Left” by Todd White.
