Mid South Women In Tourism's Biennial Fashion Fundraiser which took place at Copeland Tower Living on September 10th was a HUGE SUCCESS!

Two hundred professional women enjoyed a really fun luncheon including great swag bags, a fabulous fashion show by Dillard's Lakeside, an informative travel marketplace with exhibitors form around Louisiana, an amazing silent auction and optional mimosas in hand painted souvenir glasses!

At our December Christmas party at the Higgins Hotel, MSWIT was honored to present our two primary charitable organizations with proceeds raised from this great event.   The Cancer Association of Louisiana (CALA) and the New Orleans Family Justice Center each received $8500 checks to help women in our area.

Additionally Abby Hoffman, UNO HRT GRAD STUDENT selected by the faculty to be the deserving student to receive our $1000 scholarship award.

Thanks goes out to Copeland Tower Living and all our members on the Fundraiser Committee who put in so much time on this event as well as everyone who donated auction and swag bag items or paid to be marketplace vendors.   We also want to thank our Presenting Sponsor, Fidelity Bank, as well as many other Sponsors, Dillards Lakeside and each and everyone who attended and supported our biennial event.
