Generations of Giving

The annual “Touro Infirmary Foundation Gala” honored Stephen H. Kupperman as the 2016 Judah Touro Society award recipient. The award, considered by many as among the most prestigious awards given in the New Orleans community, was bestowed to Kupperman for his outstanding contributions to the welfare of Touro Infirmary and the community.

The Patron Party, which preceded the gala festivities, was held in Mardi Gras World’s Mansion Room and upstairs space overlooking the Mississippi River. Passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails were served.

The evening included live musical entertainment by The Courtyard Kings, followed by LaCoste Band and Mississippi Rail Co. at “L’Dor V’Dor,” the post-gala party hosted by young professionals group Touro Tomorrow. In Hebrew, “L’Dor V’Dor” means “from generation to generation.”

Marriott Hotels provided catering for the gala, which included a seated three-course dinner by chef Thorsten Leighty.

Shane and Allison Kupperman served as L’Dor V’Dor Co-Chairs. Previous Judah Touro Society Award Recipients, Dr. Jay Shames and Dr. Harris and Barbara Hyman III were also in attendance.
