Kingsley House held their annual “friendraising” luncheon, themed “Celebrate,” on Tuesday, April 24, at the Kingsley House Historic Gymnasium (circa 1832).

The luncheon, a fundraiser for the Kingsley House, is in its third year. The children at Kingsley House presented a theatrical performance, and the teenagers created the centerpieces for the luncheon. At the event, the Twister Sisters, a group of senior citizens, danced for the guests. The program began promptly at noon and was free. Kingsley House accepted donations throughout the fundraiser.

The Kingsley House educates children, strengthens families and builds communities as a United Way Community Impact Partner of the Greater New Orleans area.

Children and families have been linked to the comprehensive array of programs at Kingsley House, as well as other vital programs and services being provided by fellow social and human service organizations throughout Southeast Louisiana.
