Louisiana Appleseed’s 13th annual Good Apple Gala celebrated the good work of volunteers who have risen above the typical pro bono commitment and pillars within our communities whose daily lives align with the organization’s mission to increase access to justice, opportunity and education.
The 2022 Community Honorees were Mr. Edgar “Dooky” Chase III of Dooky Chase Restaurant, Ms. Cashauna Hill of Louisiana Fair Housing Action Center and Mr. Warner Thomas of Ochsner Health Systems. The 2022 Pro Bono Honorees were Ms. Courtney Nicholson, Ms. Sarah Faris, Ms. Alicia Hall and Ms. Courtney Dennis of Entergy, Mr. Charles King of Herman Herman & Katz and Mr. Thomas Mitchell, Texas A&M Law/2020 MacArthur Fellow.
Kimberly Silas and Kenn Barnes served as the 2022 Good Apple Gala Co-Chairs.
The program took place at Sazerac House. Hand-blown glass apple awards were created by Rosetree Glass Studio.
Brennan’s Catering provided catering, which featured passed crab meat spring rolls, roasted eggplant crostini and a roasted pork loin station. Martin Wine Cellar provided lollipop lamb chops, baked ziti, grilled vegetables and bread pudding.
The “Everyone is a Winner” raffle was a huge success, with wine and bourbon tickets sold to match a featured bottle of the chosen libation.
