Mount Carmel Academy’s Spring Fling gala was March 30, 2019, at the Audubon Tea Room. Patron Party guests enjoyed beautiful weather while mingling in the garden behind the Tea Room, sampled small bites from Pigéon Caterers, and bid on items in their own silent auction board, including a limousine ride to and from a four-course dinner for six at Ralph's on the Park.
When the gala began, so did the nine-piece party band Crescent City Soul. Attendees danced the night away, sampled cuisine from 21 of New Orleans finest restaurants, and bid on 162 wonderful silent auction items. Auctioneers Ryan Naquin and Rob Krieger entertained during the Live Auction with five exciting items up for bid, including a seven-night stay in a beachfront condo on Pensacola Beach and a Crawfish Party for 25 in the French Quarter. Lucky raffle winners of the night included Melissa Foote (Reverse Raffle), James Vallee ($4500 Trip), and Patricia Neal ($2500 Trip).
A heartfelt thank you to all of our Spring Fling attendees and especially to our 2019 Gala Chair Kim Schlosser Tumminello ’82, our 2019 Auction Chairs Mary Dana Dandry and Angela Imbornone Zimmer ’82, and our entire Spring Fling Committee.
