It is only May but I’m already feeling the heat! Maybe that’s because I’m seven months pregnant, or because Jazz Fest is just over, or because so many nonprofits are having events before the real swelter of summer sets in.
On that note, look to our Registry of Charitable Events: May-August 207 to see what you need to have on your calendar. If you don’t see your event listed, please shoot me an email (Morgan@MyNewOrleans.com) and fill out our online events form as soon as possible: MyNewOrleans.com/CharitableEvent! If you have an event coming up this fall, and aren’t sure that Avenue has it on our radar, fill out the form now; you can always send me changes later.
This issue is jam-packed with wonderful information, including our What’s Hot for Mother’s Day and its tie-in – a feature on 11 brunches around town – and our guide to your best summer skin ever, and even 20-plus tips on how to host a gala at home from those in the know!
In addition, we have our continuously creative columnists serving up information on local nonprofits, restaurants, conversations with shop owners and so much more. And, of course, there’s your event coverage and Snapshots – because it’s always so much fun to read about these events and see who Chaired and attended.
Thank you for reading Avenue and for supporting these incredible institutions, without which this magazine wouldn’t be here and our city would be so much poorer!
Have a happy and safe summer – and don’t forget your sunscreen!
