On the evening of January 16, Louisiana Appleseed threw its annual “Good Apple Gala” honoring both the organization’s fifth anniversary and five outstanding members of the community: Adams and Reese LLP, P. Michael Breeden, Ian M. Ellis, Christy Harowski and the Supreme Court of Louisiana, Office of the Judicial Administrator.
Louisiana Appleseed’s “Good Apples” were recognized for donating hundreds of pro bono hours to assist the organization in supporting programs that increase access to justice, opportunity and education in Louisiana.

The patron party began at half past six in the Stage Door Canteen, chaired by Betsy Regnell of the Board of Directors of Louisiana Appleseed. More than 200 attendees enjoyed the main gala with music by Dr. Michael White, a catered menu by chef John Besh, apple-shaped cookie favors by JCB Creations and bar by Republic National Distributing Company. Guests were also able to participate in a double raffle drawing featuring a bottle of Magnus of Opus One wine valued at over $700 and an “Everyone’s a Winner” wine bottle raffle in which every participant walked away with a bottle of wine with a value up to $100. “Good Apple” awards were specially designed and hand-crafted by James Vella of Vella Vetro Art Glass.
