The Bucktown Allstars entertained guests with live music for the evening. WDSU-TV’s Camille Whitworth served as emcee.

The event also featured a silent auction with items and packages created by the honorees, which included David Yurman jewelry, gym memberships, Fashion Week New Orleans packages, spa packages, handmade New Orleans-themed gifts, Zephyrs game tickets, signed sports memorabilia and lunch for four with a Saints player.

Proceeds from the gala went to the March of Dimes campaign to reduce the rate of premature births, birth defects and other serious threats to babies’ health.
