Daughters of Charity Foundation of New Orleans (DCFNO) held its fifth annual “Keeping Our Promises Gala” inside the picturesque Messina’s at the Terminal at the Lakefront Airport. This gala was especially meaningful, as the event included the official launch of the Krewe of Hotel Dieu, a community of individuals (comprised of former nursing students, patients, employees, etc.) who have a connection to Hotel Dieu Hospital – the local hospital owned and operated by the Daughters of Charity 1859-1992.
During the “Keeping Our Promises” Gala, Daughters of Charity Foundation of New Orleans presented The Honorable Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu with the prestigious Inspired Cross Award.
A silent auction was held featuring unique offerings, including artwork from notable New Orleanians, sports memorabilia and gift packages from premier locations throughout the region. Items of note included signed prints by artist Terrance Osborne, Southwest airline tickets, signed Hank Aaron baseball and a football signed by 26 Heisman Trophy winners. Tanya Boutte and Friends provided entertainment at the Gala.
This year’s Gala Chairs were Dr. Corey Hebert and Mullady Voelker; 300 patrons attended the event.
