Health care champions of New Orleans were honored at Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans’ (DCSNO) second annual “Keeping Our Promises Gala.” First NBC Bank hosted the March 9 event, co-chaired by Holley Haag and Julio Rodriguez.
Sally-Ann Roberts of WWL-TV/Channel 4 emceed the Inspired Cross Awards Presentation, which praises the work of individuals and organizations that work with DCSNO to “keep its promises” to provide health care for those in need. DCSNO and its partners aim to transform health care through innovation and courage. This year’s recipients were Clarence Adams Sr. of Ozanam Inn, Sharon Alexis of The Salvation Army and Dr. Robert Marier of the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners.
Tanya Boutte and Friends with Ka-Nection Band played live music while guests dined on delicious food from The Kitchen and cocktails by Glazer’s of Louisiana. Guests dined on iconic fare such as jambalaya and bread pudding. A silent auction included VIP passes to Voodoo Fest and a Saks Fifth Avenue “Make-up and Champagne Party.” DCSNO also raffled off a trip for two to Chicago. The Kitchen catered the prior patron party, and Tanya Boutte and Friends entertained.
The 2013 Creativity Sponsors included Ascension Health, Curry & Friend PLC, First NBC Bank, and LaCare. Reverence Sponsors included The Fisher Consulting Group and Liberty Bank.
In addition to honoring healthcare advocates, the gala raised funds to support DCSNO’s mission to improve the health status of the community and provide high quality, compassionate care for all – the insured, underinsured and uninsured.
