The “Crimestoppers Carnivale” patron party was held at Generations Hall on Wednesday, September 11. This social was a precursor to the main event at Mardi Gras World on September 28.

Patrons could attend this pre-party and be some of the first people to hear Dr. John and Bobby Rush’s newest collaboration, a song titled “Another Murder in New Orleans.” Other local musicians, such as Shelea, Charmaine Neville, James Andrews and Rockin’ Dopsie were available to preform and stand as a united front with Crimestoppers in an effort to lessen corruption in New Orleans and take the neighborhoods back.

Cynthia Molyneux and Caryn Rodgers chaired this valiant get-together alongside honorary chairs Deputy Chief Anthony H. Christiana Jr. and John A. “Jay” Batt Jr. The host of the evening was Bryan Batt, who gave away unique masks crafted by local artists and a three-night stay at a Bahaman resort through the live and silent auctions.

Patrons enjoyed an open bar while tasting the cuisine from restaurants such as Drago’s, Copeland’s, Galatoire’s and Creole Creamery. This event creatively raised awareness and funds for those providing opportunities to deter crime from the city.
