On the evening of Wednesday, December 11, the crème de la crème of the Crescent City gathered at IberiaBank at 3412 St. Charles Ave., to celebrate the annual St. Charles Avenue magazine 2013 “Activists of the Year.”

Selected with great care, these individuals were honored not only that evening, but on the December cover of the magazine as well as an extensive feature on each of the six local philanthropists. The 2013 Activists included Adelaide Wisdom Benjamin for her work with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Bollinger Shipyards’ Boysie Bollinger, Julie Livaudais George of Chaffe McCall, L.L.P., Susan Read Johnson for her contributions to Catholic Charities and Children’s Hospital, New Orleans’ icon musician Allen Toussaint and Entergy’s Rod West.

Attendees enjoyed two open bars in the beautiful IberiaBank location, upstairs and downstairs. Host IberiaBank provided edibles and libations as well as elegant yuletide decorations. John Rankin, acclaimed musician and professor at Loyola University New Orleans, serenaded guests while they enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Renaissance Publishing editors Errol Laborde, Morgan Packard and Beverly Church awarded the honorees and thanked them for their gracious contributions to the community.
