The National Council of Jewish Women brought a little bit of Hawaii to the Warehouse District this past April with their “Hawaiian Paradise” fundraiser at the Sun Ray Grill. The NCJW is the oldest women’s grassroots organization in the United States, and strives for social justice, equal rights and an enhanced Jewish life.

Co-chairs Marisa Kahn and Rollie Rabin helped organize a fabulous evening, which transported guests directly to the tropics. The event was both a fundraiser and a chance to connect with the greater New Orleans area, raising awareness about the organization and its important work.

The Sun Ray Grill was fully decked out in tropical decor and presented a Kosher-style luau, featuring leg of lamb, grilled shish kabobs and Hawaiian vegetable fried rice. A strolling ukulele player greeted guests, and real hula dancers enthralled the crowds while they performed one of Hawaii’s most famous traditions.

Guests also enjoyed a grand silent auction that boasted a number of fabulous lots. Items included a two-night stay at both the Hilton Riverside and Windsor Court hotels as well as gift certificates to The Court of Two Sisters and other top restaurants. F
