The evening of March 29th witnessed the 15th annual “Soul Revival” at the elegant Garden District home of Lauren and George Brower on Third Street. Chaired by Elly Lane and Mark Romig, the event, which is annually held at the Brower home, raised funds for parent organization Legacy Donor Foundation’s educational programs and awareness activities to endorse the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation.
The late David Voelker founded the Legacy Donor Foundation in 1998 to raise funds and public awareness for organ, eye and tissue transplants, and is still the only organization in Louisiana that’s solely dedicated to growing the state donor registry. Guests enjoyed delightfully delicious culinary treats from Dickie Brennan’s Tableau matching the attire of backyard casual, including baby back ribs, smoked beef brisket, pulled pork and barbecued chicken.
Sponsored by Tulane Medical Center and Tulane University School of Medicine, the event also provided an impressive entertainment lineup featuring local popular groups such as The New Orleans Gospel Soul Children, The Benchwarmers, The Kinfolk Brass Band and DJ Rob Nice.
