Patron party guests were greeted by members of The Sirens dance and marching krewe and enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres from the Four Seasons Catering while sipping champagne. Gordon Towell and Hunter Burgamy performed smooth jazz stylings for all to enjoy.

For guests at the gala, Kern Studios provided thematic props, FAIT Nola provided flowers and centerpieces and The Topcats provided live musical entertainment.

The Four Seasons served as an appropriate venue for the evening and as a prime example of adaptive reuse and the potential to restore and revitalize historic buildings, as the former World Trade Center has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 2014. The Four Seasons also provided catering. Sazerac Company sponsored the bar alongside beer provided by NOLA Brewing Co.

Key auction items included a 30-bottle wine raffle valued at over $1,200, a custom suit from Fellow Menswear, an emerald ring from Beje Jewelers and vacations to Pittsburgh, Nashville, Telluride, Cabo San Lucas and Argentina. A raffle featured 12 curated packages reflecting the many seasons of New Orleans.

Vivian Grandal and Ashleigh Taylor served as Event Co-Chairs. Landis Construction presented the gala with other major sponsors including: TruWealth Advisors, Dixie Construction and Thrive Landscaping, First Horizon, Murphy Appraisal Services, Roth Law Firm and Stonehenge Capital.
