Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans celebrated its “2013 Rising Stars” thrice this year, ending with a big blowout gala on Friday, November 8, 2013. The five notables were profiled in an earlier issue of St. Charles Avenue magazine – remember Suzanne Alford, Dwayne Bernal, Lavonzell Nicholson, Amy Sins and Sandy Villere?
Friends and family were also invited to celebrate earlier this autumn with a cocktail party and hors d’oeuvres at the elegant home of Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Pulitzer in scenic Audubon Place on Thursday, October 10, 2013. Sponsored by Entergy, People’s Health and St. Charles Avenue magazine, the gala included delicious edibles and a night of fun for the 10th anniversary of Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans’ “City Stars Soirée.”
Since its inception, the “City Stars Soirée” has recognized nearly 40 honorees under the age of 40 who personify resourcefulness, drive and passion for their ideas, products and our community. Festivities included entertainment by Glen David Andrews and auction and raffles for over 100 items.
