Raintree Children and Family Services hosted their lively annual party, “Paint the Town Green,” at the Harrah’s Theater in Harrah’s Casino. The event honored major Raintree supporter Telecom for Change, a professional organization of telecom agents and carriers coming together to provide aid to charitable organizations and promote camaraderie amongst peers.

Event chairs were Carl Gilmore Jr. and Cindy Paulin.

An impressive list of caterers featured Antoine’s, Broussard’s, Chateau Gold & Country Club, Drago’s, Gendusa’s, Gordon Biersch, GW Fins, Marcello’s, Mr. Mudbug, Palace Café, Perrone & Sons, Sac-a-Lait and a rum station provided by Old New Orleans Rum Company. Partygoers danced the night away to music by The Brass-A-Holics.

The live auction, hosted by emcee Greg Reggio, included a Saints/Pelicans experience package, a chartered fishing trip, a chocolate pearl earring/necklace set from Anton Ltd. and an embellished giclée from James Michalopolous. A huge variety of items were available for bidding at the silent auction, including modern art, jewelry and numerous hotel and restaurant experiences.
