Tulane University’s A.B. Freeman School of Business and the Levy Rosenblum Institute for Entrepreneurship hosted their Entrepreneurs Gala on April 11 at the Westin Hotel at Canal Place. Both the university and the institute are dedicated to supporting community leaders who have a proven track record of philanthropy and have made a positive impact on society.  
Ira Solomon, dean of Tulane University’s A.B. Freeman School of Business, and his wife Susan co-chaired the event, along with Drs. Ralph Maurer and Margaret Butler.

The evening saw two awards given: the Tulane Distinguished Entrepreneur of the Year award and the Tulane Outstanding Social Entrepreneur of the Year. Stanley and Dana Day, who herself is a Tulane board member, both received the Social Entrepreneur of the Year award for their work with the NewDay Foundation. The foundation awards Tulane students funding so that they can create real solutions to the most pressing social issues of today.

Additionally, Adelaide “Ti” Martin, of the Commander’s Family of Restaurants, received the Distinguished Entrepreneur award for her outstanding contributions to the hospitality industry in New Orleans. Martin also co-founded, and currently serves as board chair of the New Orleans Culinary and Hospitality Institute, which partners with several local universities.
