Hats Off Enterprising Woman of the Year Luncheon 2017
Please join us for inspiration, food and fun as we honor our Enterprising Women (and Men) of 2016, and announce the 2016 Enterprising Woman of the Year at our annual Hats Off luncheon Friday, April 7, beginning 11:30 a.m. at The Greystone.
Our keynote speaker is co-anchor of FOX 8 News, Kim Holden. A native of New Orleans, Kim is an enterprising woman in her own right. Starting as a part-time production assistant at WVUE in 1989, she worked her way up through the ranks to producer, then turned on-camera, first as a reporter, then as weekend anchor. After a stint in management, Kim returned to in front of the camera as she launched the FOX 8 morning show in 2005. She has earned numerous awards for her reporting, including an Emmy and two prestigious Edward R. Murrow awards. She was also twice named Associated Press “Reporter of the Year.”
In keeping with our tradition, we will feature a silent auction of goods and services from local businesses to benefit a non-profit. This year’s beneficiary is the Humane Society of Louisiana whose mission is to empower individuals and communities to create a no-kill state where the lives of all animals matter. The funds will be used to provide shelter, food and medical care for Northshore animals, especially those still displaced from the flood last March. We ask for your participation to make the silent auction one of the hottest of the year by donating goods or services for the cause. Your tax-deductible donation is greatly appreciated. A receipt for your donation will be provided.
We encourage you to sponsor a table and/or donate an item for the silent auction to increase the proceeds going to the Humane Society of Louisiana.
Dress: Hats Are Encouraged!
