Special thanks to the staff of YA/YA.

Holiday shopping starts early this year thanks to Young Aspirations/Young Artists. Complete your gift list with unique, artistic gifts that support the dreams of young New Orleanians thorough YA/YA, Inc.’s “Just Say YA/YA” event.

Join corporate chair Kay Kerrigan, immediate past president of the board Shelby Russ, patron Paige Royer and co-chair Ann Fuselier on Thursday, December 8, at Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World (east bank). The evening starts off with a patron party at 6 p.m. where you’ll be serenaded by the music of Charmaine Neville. The gala follows at 7 p.m. and will feature YA/YA-inspired hors d’oeuvres and a first chance to see and buy everything – tables, chairs, portraits of local musicians, glass art and YA/YA chairs (miniature and regular). You can even commission your own art project, created specifically for that special someone.

Co-chair Melissa Fuselier and honorary patron chair and director of New Orleans Museum of Art Susan Taylor will also be on hand to help you select the perfect gift from the best artworks by the YA/YAs, while you wine and dine and support this original New Orleans youth development program.

The deadline to be listed as a patron is September 28; for more information and tickets call 529-3306 or visit YaYaInc.com.
