WYES celebrated its “60 Years and Still Groovin’ Gala” at the home of Dana and Steve Hansel. Guests enthusiastically embraced the 1960s theme by donning a variety of groovy attire, from flower child to hippie, go-go boots to astronauts, “Mad Men” to Jackie O. The costuming cast a colorful array across the gala and set the tone for the evening.

The Hansels’ home was awash in colorful lighting, decorated by large papier-mâché flowers and a red carpet walkway lining the lawn and entrance. Guests enjoyed a photo opportunity with a vintage Thunderbird and were greeted by British-styled models as they made their way to the tented backyard.

Celebrate! Catered Events by Windsor Court offered passed and displayed bites, including a popular fondue station with three warm cheeses and a Louisiana charcuterie station. Libations were provided by Goldring Family Foundation Sazerac Company and Breaux Mart.

Escalade delighted guests with their musical stylings and got guests moving their feet, encouraged by go-go dancers on platforms to dance the night away.

Kaylea and Hunter Hill, Mary and Bill Hines, and C.C. and Bill Langenstein served as Event Co-Chairs. Approximately 275 attended the festive event.
