Soulful Under the Stars

All about celebrating life, this year’s 19th annual “Soul Revival” event showcased the impact of support for organ, eye and tissue donation and awareness on all generations.

Champions of the cause, the Brown families – Joey and Buzzy Brown, and Elizabeth and Christian Brown – Co-Chaired this year’s event.

Signs hand-painted with sayings including “Life is good, giving is better” and “Register Now – We Will Show You How” inspired guests, and sponsors were listed on large hand-painted wooden signs displayed on the house.

Third Street was converted into a block party with bistro lights and butcher-block tables. Guests enjoyed the al fresco evening and conversations about supporting life through organ, eye and tissue donation continued.

For the Patron Party, Dickie Brennan & Co. Catering provided a beautiful charcuterie display for the patron party guests along with wines from Chateau St. Michelle and libations from Sazerac Companies.

“Soul Revival” featured food stations from Jacques-Imo’s, Miss Linda, Sylvain, La Cocinita and Crêpes à la Cart. Mini Tabasco bottles with custom labels decorated each station.

Every year “Soul Revival” has begun with a gospel choir to pay tribute to those who have saved lives through organ donation.

This year’s event maintained tradition and featured the gospel choir of Progressive Baptist Church, the church to which LDF Board Member Rev. Willie Gable belongs. Additional entertainment included the Jenn Howard Band played followed by DJ Rob Nice.
