The 2016 honorees were: Kim Bergeron, Lynne Burkart, Tanya Harris-Glasow, Colonel Cindy H. Haygood, Sandra Herman, Teresa Lawrence, McKenzie Lovelace, Diane B. Lyons, Marjorie A. McKeithen and Ingrid Rinck.
Prior to the main event, there was a “Meet and Greet” for board members, honorees and Red Cross leadership. For the main event, attendees second-lined into the ballroom for the feature presentation.

The 2016 Keynote Speaker was Jaime Primak Sullivan, star of the Bravo series “Jersey Belle,” host of the daily digital Facebook series #cawfeetawk and author of The Southern Education of a Jersey Girl.

In addition, there were two photo booths and a virtual reality presentation depicting the Red Cross’ ground response five days into the August floods, designed and hosted by New Orleans-based 360 video firm R&D Design. There was also a $100 jewelry grab by Kendra Scott.

Amanda and Justin Seale served as event Co-Chairs. More than 400 guests were in attendance.
