Held in the Mahogany Room of the Basin Street Station overlooking the French Quarter, the third annual “Dinner to Benefit Urology” was an elegant affair accentuated with white lilies and black linen.

Co-chaired by Ann Fuselier and Gigi Vanlangendonck, the evening featured a four-course dinner and a live auction for 100 donors supporting the mission of education and research in the LSUHSC Department of Urology. The Louisiana State Health Sciences Center, UroTigers Alumni Society and the LSU Health Foundation come together every January to honor supporters and advocates who work tirelessly on the behalf of individuals who suffer from pelvic issues, prostate cancer and more.

The event recognized the Almar Foundation as the Community Honoree with trustees Peggy and Chairman of the LSU Health Foundation Jack Laorde accepting the award from Dr. J. Christian Winters, Chairman of the Urology Department. For their outstanding commitment to the department, Doctors Joseph A. LaNasa Jr. and James J. Leonard were also honored. Ralph Brennan Catering provided the four-course dinner, including classic turtle soup and Belgian chocolate tarts with caramel ice cream. Guests enjoyed entertainment by the Joe Torregano Trio, and featured auction items from Adler’s and Friend & Company Fine Jewelers.
