The fourth annual “Greenway Soirée” brought together the best in food, drink and entertainment for an evening of celebration one year after the Greenway’s opening. Proceeds from the event will support Friends of Lafitte Greenway’s work to build programs and promote the Lafitte Greenway as a great public space.
Approximately 230 supporters were treated to food from some of the city’s best restaurants as they danced to live music by James Singleton & Friends and DJ Fayard, sampled craft cocktails, beer and wine, mingled and shopped at the silent auction provided by items from Lafitte Corridor businesses. Decorations and table settings included beautiful and lush local plants and green ribbons throughout the venue.
Attendees enjoyed cuisine from premier New Orleans restaurants including Cafe Degas, Dooky Chase’s Restaurants, Dryades Public Market, Parkway Bakery & Tavern, Napoleon House, Quintin’s Natural Ice Cream, Susan Spicer’s Rosedale, The Ruby Slipper, Southern Candymakers and TANA. Beer, wine and cocktails were provided by Bizou Wines, Mystic Vine, Pearl Wine Co., Second Line Brewing and 1961 Vodka.
The 2016 “Greenway Soirée” was chaired by Ethan Ashley, Vaughn Fauria, Sonya Jarvis, Cheryl Landrieu, Margaret Orr, Cleveland Spears and Vincent Sylvain.
