On the evening of Sunday, March 23, the Children’s Museum of St. Tammany hosted its premier fundraising event of the spring, “Celebration: All-Aboard.” Chaired by Nicole Gonzales, the evening kicked off at the Castine Center in Pelican Park in Mandeville.
The seventh annual event of its kind promoted the mission of the Children’s Museum of St. Tammany: to inspire children to imagine, explore and create in an interactive learning environment. The evening raised money for the next phase of the Children’s Museum of St. Tammany project, featuring more than 40 local restaurants in a culinary showcase, including Annadele’s Plantation, Another Broken Egg Cafe, N’Tini’s, Nonna Randazzo’s, New Orleans Food and Beverage, Dakota Restaurant, Gallagher’s Grill, Don’s Seafood, Lago Mexican Restaurant, DiCristina’s Italian & Seafood Restaurant, Zoe’s Bakery, Glazer’s Companies of Louisiana and Champagne Beverage Co., Inc.
Featuring entertainment by dance band Groovy 7 and the Mandeville High School Jazz Band, guests had the opportunity to bid on live and silent auctions on art, jewelry, home decor and more. Margaret Orr and Doug Mouton served as masters of ceremonies at the highly successful event.
