The Young Leadership Council will hold its annual “Role Model Gala” to recognize individuals who keep New Orleans “young” by serving as such to young professionals. This year, the event will honor 25 New Orleanians on Saturday, August 10, at the Hyatt Regency.

Chair Serina Phoenix, Board President Richard Pavlick and Executive Director Curry Smith will begin the black-tie evening with a patron party and exclusive “Role Model Meet and Greet” at 8 Block Restaurant, which will be followed by dinner and the awards ceremony in the Empire Ballroom. Guests will polish off the night with dancing and entertainment following the presentation of awards.

All proceeds will benefit the YLC’s efforts to “recruit and retain young professionals to New Orleans” and “have a positive impact on the quality of life in the region” through volunteer-created community projects. With more than 1,300 “member-volunteers,” the YLC is the oldest independent young professionals’ organization in the county and has raised more than $25 million to support community projects in the greater New Orleans area since 1986.

For more information and to purchase tickets, call 585-1500, extension 201, or visit www.YLCNola.org.


Special thanks to Juliana Anderson Wilkins, Development and Communications Manager for the Young Leadership Council.
