Fancying France

The National Council of Jewish Women visits “April in Paris.”

The National Council of Jewish Women, Greater New Orleans Section, held their annual fundraiser “April in Paris” on April 15 at the Eiffel Society. The event featured music by John Rankin and French accordionist Norbert Slama.

The “Sirens of New Orleans” danced throughout the streets of Paris where various boutiques and vendors sold: jewelry by Vitrice McMurry; stationery by Alexa Pulitzer; hand-painted silk scarves and jackets by Ray Cole; fascinators and hand-fashioned ornaments by Bedford Falls; potholders and chapeaux by Tracy Thomas; New Orleans customized doormats by Gary Zollar; art glass by Juli Juneau; and ceramic artwork by Peggy Bishop. French cuisine and drinks were served along with a silent auction.
