2014 Fundraiser Report
MSWIT's 2014 Fashion Fundraiser benefitting Mid-South Women In Tourism, the New Orleans Family Justice Center, and the Cancer Association of Greater New Orleans was a huge success!
The event was held at the Crowne Plaza New Orleans Airport on Sunday, October 4, 2014 from 1:00PM until 4:00PM. 175 guests enjoyed a delicious brunch and bottomless martinis and did some early holiday shopping at the Marketplace featuring over 20 local vendors. An extensive Parade of Prize featured vacation packages, local getaways, art, jewelry, and more. A fashion show culminated the event with MSWIT members modeling looks available at Macy's.
More than $6,300 was raised for the three organizations.
Mid-South Women in Tourism’s primary objectives are to provide opportunities for women in the travel and tourism industries to network locally, nationally, and internationally with contacts that will contribute to their professional and personal growth, and to encourage and assist women to improve their knowledge and experience through educational programs.
The Cancer Association of Greater New Orleans, a non-profit United Way community impact partner, prides itself in protecting and defending the community against cancer through education, outreach, research and assistance of needy cancer patients. CAGNO’s patient services program provides vital prescription medications and necessities to cancer patients who otherwise would have to do without.
New Orleans Family Justice Center is a partnership of agencies dedicated to ending family violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and stalking through prevention and coordinated response by providing comprehensive client-centered, empowerment services in a single location.
