The evening's Master of Ceremonies was Nancy Parker of Fox 8's Morning Edition. This was her seventh year in this role and, as always, was a vibrant addition to the event.
The two awards presented:

The Fleur-de-lis Award, presented annually to an individual for their extraordinary dedication to our historic neighborhood, was awarded to Julie Sanford. Julie was recognized for her involvement with the Hard Rock Cafe New Orleans' many charitable events and her personal charitable affiliations in the French Quarter.

The Ambassador Award, which was created to recognize an individual member or member organization that understands the FQBA's mission and then goes above and beyond to assist the Association in achieving that goal, was awarded to NCIS: New Orleans Producer Joseph Zolfo. Joseph was recognized for sponsoring the FQBA's Vieux Carre Graffiti Abatement Program's biannual French Quarter graffiti cleanups and the FQBA's Holiday Breakfast for the past three years.
