Philanthropic Fun: Festive Fun

Families gathered for a holiday-themed party at Tableau and a trip to Le Petit Théâtre.

“Fête de Fezziwig” was held to support Le Petit’s mission to present the highest quality theatrical performances to entertain and educate the diverse population of the New Orleans area.

The family-centric event was held in the Green Room at Tableau, which was decorated for the winter holidays. Tableau provided cuisine including mini grilled cheese sandwiches, hummus bites and a wide array of holiday-themed sweet treats. The signature cocktail, the Fizzywig, was a festive drink made of cranberry, lime and cava generously donated by W.I.N.O.

Kids made their own snowglobe Christmas ornaments and traditional Victorian crafts, and created a garland to hang on the Le Petit lobby Christmas tree. A highlight of the program was a visit from A Christmas Carol’s Mr. And Mrs. Fezziwig in full costume, played by Sean Patterson and Cammie West.

A silent auction ranged from holiday gifts for children such as an American Girl doll and Star Wars Lego set, to spa packages, jewelry and art for adults, including art donated by James Michalopoulos, Rachael DePauw and Chris Roberts Antieau.

Event Chairs were Shon Cowan Baker and Robin Bordelon Borne.

This was the first Fête de Fezziwig and will be an annual event held in conjunction with Le Petit’s yearly presentation of A Christmas Carol. Following the activities at Tableau, attendees moved over to Le Petit to view a full performance of the show.
