Philanthropy is the focal point of St. Charles Avenue, and this year marks the 20th anniversary of our celebration of the generous activists in our community. In celebration of this milestone, St. Charles Avenue presented a donation to the Foundation at East Jefferson General Hospital.
The event was presented by IBERIABANK and held at their location on St. Charles Avenue. East Jefferson General Hospital was a contributing sponsor. Laura Arrowood provided the catering. A duet of NOCCA students provided musical entertainment.
St. Charles Avenue editors Morgan Packard and Beverly Church presented beautiful custom-designed glass awards, created by Paulette Lizano of Lizano’s Glass Haus, to activists in attendance. In recognition for her years of dedication and service to New Orleans philanthropies, Beverly Church was surprised as she was named St. Charles Avenue magazine’s 50th Activist.
In the words of St. Charles Avenue activist Barbara Bush, “Activism is citizens unselfishly working together for the common goal of a better, stronger community and brighter tomorrow.” No American city better understands the impact of a community coming together to better itself than New Orleans. The 50 St. Charles Avenue activists, along with the countless others whose tireless efforts mold New Orleans daily, truly represent the pinnacle of our values at St. Charles Avenue and in our beloved city.
