Get ready for the 22nd annual “CHAIRish the Children: A Fall Feast Celebrating New Orleans” fundraiser, which will be celebrated in a very different way! The Louisiana Children’s Museum’s new location is fabulous, and thanks to the pandemic they need us more than ever!

Thanks to our cover participants: LCM’s CEO Julia Bland, LCM Board President Scott Zander, Matthew Pettus representing Acorn/Dickie Brennan & Co. and Chad Berg representing Lee Michaels. They are promising a virtual event that all of us can be a part of safely at home on October 2-3. This year’s theme is inspired by local artist Dr. Bob, who’s creating the first-ever poster for “CHAIRish the Children.” With your ticket you’ll receive a delectable take-home dinner brought to you by Dickie Brennan & Co., Rouses Markets, Louisiana Seafood and The Goldring Family Foundation. While enjoying your meal, you can bid on the auction, get your Lee Michael’s Fine Jewelry raffle tickets and purchase the limited-edition Dr. Bob print available through their website. There are different price points, from $75-$160 per person and higher, so call for your tickets today by calling 266-2415 or visiting

We are so excited that we’re covering four philanthropic events this month, and it’s so important that you get us information for your favorite nonprofit’s fundraisers. Whether they’re virtual or a combination, it’s vital for you to support these nonprofits – especially now!

We have all been home, fixing up our homes and missing the sights and sounds of the natural world. So check out What’s Hot for Art, celebrating Mother Nature.

Our main feature covers Health Trends and why it’s important to keep up with appointments in person or by telehealth, along with some information on ways to keep yourself safe. On that note, look right at the photo of Dr. Bob, who’s trying to get everyone to wear a mask!

Canal Place is excited to announce the opening of Nail Bar NOLA this coming fall. Located on level 2 near Saks Fifth Avenue, it will offer a plush and relaxing space where guests can enjoy manicures, pedicures, blow outs and facial treatments. Canal Place is thrilled to be reopened and welcoming guests!

We are so grateful to the following advertisers who are bearing the brunt of the pandemic: Children’s Hospital, Touro, Poydras Home, The Skin Surgery Center and Jacob Schoen & Sons. Thanks to them for helping us through this crisis!

Please be safe and stay positive!

Beverly Reese Church
Dr. Bob is open and wants to see you if you have a mask on at his studio near NOCCA at 3027 Chartres St. He produced posters at his own expense to put in each neighborhood to promote mask wearing, and he’s been helping local artists who are having a difficult time with the pandemic. They all need our support! Visit to find your new favorite piece or to buy a poster for your neighborhood today!



As you can see, thanks to a breadth of fundraisers I have a very short space this month! As I write we’re experiencing that wonderful time when fall tempts us with cooler temperatures (usually before letting summer have one last go at steaming us). If you’ve read my notes before, you’ll know that fall is my favorite time of year! While we begin to enjoy a new season, don’t forget to keep your distance, mask up and wash your hands!
