Night of Hope Benefit Dinner at English Turn Golf & Country Club

Sideline Pass hosted a magical Night of Hope on January 7 inside English Turn Golf & Country Club for 30 special guests. This fundraiser will help Sideline Pass send our foster girls from RainTree Family Services to prom this spring in the dress, shoes and accouterments of their choice! The fairytale atmosphere was created by Wink Design and Events, Bella Blooms Floral, Exquisite Events Invites and Firefly Ambiance. (If you’d like to see more of this unbelievable table setting, be sure to check out the spring edition of New Orleans Weddings Magazine!)

Our guests were treated to a 4-course meal courtesy of English Turn. Tasty mini King Cake was a special treat for King's Day thanks to Bakers Dozen.  Veuve Champagne was provided by Trey Monaghan and Molly’s At the Market. The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation generously provided excellent wine to accompany dinner. New Orleans’ favorite musician Robin Barnes and Pat Casey delighted guests, who danced the night away in the candlelight. Gorgeous photographs were graciously captured by Geovanni Vasquez of Black and Geauxld Photography.

Special thanks to the Irving Morris Foundation and Acme Oyster House for providing an amazing raffle package including pearl earrings, several gift cards and a swag bag! Our generous supporters also created a stellar silent auction that included a Carousel Tiger necklace from Reagan Charleston Designs, game-worn gloves and cleats from former Saints player and current Washington Redskins running back Pierre Thomas, a custom jacket from Fellow Suits, a golf outing courtesy of English Turn, a signed jersey from the Saints Cam Jordan and a collector’s edition basketball signed by the entire New Orleans Pelicans basketball team. Gift bags were stuffed with special gifts which included a hardcopy of Under Our Skin authored by New Orleans Saints Ben Watson, Da Cajun Critter Cookbook by Pam Lyles, Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning, FELLOW Custom Suits and a Member for a Day access from English Turn.

Jennifer Hale’s dress is a Pedram Couture original. Expert stylist Lynna Vo created Ms. Hale’s makeup for the evening.
