The “Dinner to Benefit Research in Urology” opened with a cocktail hour, where patrons mingled about the warm and elegant Basin St. Station museum to the tunes of the Pfister Sisters. A three-course dinner was served upstairs, catered by Ralph Brennan Catering and Events, with the Joe Torregano Trio playing in the backdrop.

Dr. Tony Fuselier welcomed guests and thanked the benefactors for the evening, Dr. and Mrs. Robert Alexander, along with Dr. Sam Harrison, Dr. & Mrs. Richard Vanlangendonck and Friend & Company, along with sponsors Adler’s, Dr. and Mrs. James J. Leonard and Kathleen Boh. Dr. Richard Vanlangendonck thanked Co-Chairs Gigi Vanlangendonck and Gay Winters, and introduced Dr. Chris Winters, who discussed the purpose of UroTigers, which funds resident original research and presentations. Dr. Chris Winters also announced the honorees: Dr. Robert Alexander, Dr. James Leonard and Dr. Sam Harrison.

Following dinner, patrons participated in a lively auction with fun banter over prizes such as a bourgeois fishing trip for two, breakfast or lunch at Brennan’s for six, football tickets to the LSU/ University of Florida game with a two night stay at L’Auberge Hotel & Casino for two, dinner for two at Irene’s Italian Cuisine, a raw sapphire bracelet from Friend & Company and Tahitian pearl and diamond earrings from Adler’s Fine Jewelry.

Each guest received a beautifully wrapped purple embossed luggage tag from Adler’s Fine Jewelry.
