The Old Ursuline Convent gardens provided a beautiful setting for Lighthouse Louisiana’s “Light Up The Night” gala, accented by draped tenting with chandeliers, tables adorned with black and yellow tablecloths and floral arrangements.

Food purveyors included Catering d’Orleans, Chez Nous, Joel Catering, Joey K’s, Mandina’s, Red Dog Diner and The Rum House. Music was provided by DJ Swamp Boogie spinning his vinyl.

The Roux La La dance troupe entertained throughout the party and energized the auction. Prizes included artwork by famed New Orleans artists such as Jennifer Andsardi and a framed giclée print by George Dunbar, a barkeeper’s set from Studio Amanda Talley, a diamond necklace from Friend & Company, a Luca custom blazer from Luca Falcone Custom Clothiers and an at-home private dinner from Ralph Brennan’s Catering.

Blair Monroe, Amy Farnsworth, Dr. Troy Scroggins and Julie Nosser served as Event Chairs. Approximately 300 partygoers were in attendance.
