Viva the Volunteers

On the afternoon of October 23, Saint Elizabeth’s Guild gathered its honorees for its “New Orleans’ Best Volunteer Activists of 2013 Luncheon” at the Marriott Hotel on Canal Street.

Chaired by Kathy Mitchell and Maria Huete, the luncheon honored Erin Caruso, Joan Boudreaux Cuccia, Anne Favret, Ann Fuselier, Juli Miller Hart, Dr. Anna Monhartova, Ashton J. Ryan Jr., Jennifer Steel Bourgeois, Julie C. Vanderbrook and Denise Woodward for their outstanding charitable work during 2013.

With over 600 guests in attendance, the luncheon raised funds for the many programs that Saint Elizabeth’s Guild supports, including the “Saint John the Baptist Headstart Program: Independent Living Skills,” which prepares young adults who have outgrown the foster care system to become successful in life, and “Padua Pediactrics,” a facility for mentally and physically disabled children who are cared for by a loving staff and doctors.  

The event featured a fashion show by Dillard’s, entertainment by the 610 Stompers and an auction. Patron party music was provided by the Royal Jazz Ensemble, while Karen Swensen of WWL emceed and Archbishop Gregory Aymond performed the invocation and award presentation.
