“A ‘SAV-VY’ Affair” for Saint Andrew’s Village brought in more than 400 guests this year. Event chairs included Chris Zainey, Kathryn Zainey Gonski, Jane Dufour, Sudie Sutter Joint, Alicia Corcoran and Louis Bartels.

The venue was decorated in blue and white lighting and décor, the signature colors of Saint Andrew’s Village. A variety of delicious dishes were donated by 25 local vendors, including Bon Temps Café, The Balcony Receptions, Byblos, McAlister’s Deli, Babylon Cagfe, Salú and The Gumbo Shop. Deserts were provided by Sweet Treats from Maple Street Patisserie and La Louisiane Bakery, with a gourmet sno-ball station thanks to Imperial Woodpecker Sno-Balls. Live music was donated by The Whiskey Penguins.

Auction highlights include a private evening cruise on a yacht, local dine-arounds, Florida vacation packages, Saints tickets and field passes, Pelicans memorabilia, luxury hotel stays, original art and fine jewelry.

Now in its second year, the wine pull was a huge success. For a small contribution, wine pull participants had their chance to pull from 90 bottles of wine graciously donated by Oak, Meauxbar, Martin Wine Cellar, Saia’s Supermarket Mandeville and Acquistapace’s.

More than $100,000 was raised for Saint Andrew’s Village, a secure, loving community where adults with developmental disabilities can live, work, worship and socialize throughout their lifelong journey.
