| $50

hammers to heels

Kick off your work boots, slip on your heels, and join us for a cocktail party to honor inspirational women from around the city that have fought for our community and are still fighting for the 10,000 families who cannot afford to rebuild their homes. Sen. Mary Landrieu is serving as the Honorary Chair of our annual event that raises funds to bring New Orleans families home.

We will be celebrating the successes of our Women’s Rebuild Month and the vital role that women play in the ongoing recovery and rebirth of the city. There will be a brief awards ceremony to honor some phenomenal women leaders. Enjoy Patrón cocktails, Barefoot wines, and beer from Southern Eagle Distributers while jazz vocalist Cindy Scott and singer/songwriter Kristen Diable perform. Delicious dishes have been generously donated by:
Chef John Besh
Mandina’s Restaurant
La Petite Grocery
Chef Chris Lusk from Café Adelaide
Blue Frog Chocolates
Cake Cafe and Bakery
There will also be a silent auction for items including an overnight stay in Chicago and a $250 gift certificate to The Occasional Wife.

General admission is $50. There are also sponsorship opportunities to support our Women’s Rebuild Month for those unable to attend:
Tickets – $50
Supporter – $125
Benefactor – $250
Sponsor – $500
