St. Andrew’s Village threw their annual fundraiser on the evening of Friday, November 22, 2013, to the delight of over 500 guests at The Chicory. Chaired by Chris Zainey, Kathryn Zainey Gonski, Joy Haik Zainey, Margaret Zainey Roux, Sudie Sutter Joint, Alicia Corcoran and Louis Bartels, the event raised over $130,000 for St. Andrew’s Village.

St. Andrew’s Village is a secure community where adults with developmental disabilities can live, work, worship and socialize.

Guests enjoyed cocktails, edibles and dancing in a festive setting while bidding on over 150 choice items including art, jewelry, sports memorabilia, home décor, dining and travel packages. Twenty-five food vendors provided dining choices, including Borgne, Salú, Bon Ton Café, Katie’s, Café Reconcile and more.

Guests danced the night away to the sounds of the Levee Dawgs and enjoyed pop-up stands with sweets and snowballs. Highlight auction items included a weeklong stay at a private beach house in Florida, a signed and numbered Blue Dog print from artist George Rodrigue, an evening sail for eight aboard a private yacht and an all-inclusive private party at the Chicory.
