Philanthropic Fun: On the Avenue

The St. Charles Avenue Association preserves our picturesque local landmarks and live oaks.
President Paul Masinter with Co-Chairs Anne Redd and Tommy Westervelt

The St. Charles Avenue Association, which hosted its “Inaugural Fundraiser” on May 8, advocates for the historic and residential character of St. Charles Avenue. The Association spearheaded the designation of the streetcar line as a National Historic Landmark and currently provides funding to maintain the over 1,000 live oak trees on the avenue.

IberiaBank on St. Charles Avenue hosted the event and also served as Lead Sponsor. The fabulous invitation was artfully designed by Tim Trapolin.

President Paul Masinter welcomed the approximately 100 attendees, and especially thanked IberiaBank for its lead support. He also recognized Ted LeClercq for leading the charge to have the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line designated a National Historic Landmark.

Laura Arrowood Catering provided bites and the John Parker Trio performed. Dunn & Sonnier Antiques • Florals • Gifts created the floral arrangements. Tommy Westervelt and Anne Redd served as Co-Chairs.
