Jose Balli hosts "Silver for Service" event for St. Paul's Homecoming Center

Local designer creates custom pieces to benefit ongoing New Orleans recovery


July 8, 2013-St. Paul's Homecoming Center (SPHC) has partnered with local jewelry designer, Jose Balli for the "Silver for Service" benefit Thursday, July 25, 5pm - 8:30pm at 621 Charters Street in the French Quarter.

Balli has designed a custom sterling silver jewelry line fashioned after the authentic New Orleans style shotgun house. This line will benefit SPHC and be revealed at the event, and prices range from $75 on up. Additional Balli collections that include New Orleans centric art and designs will also be for sale. Thirty percent of all jewelry and art sales from the night will benefit SPHC.  

Event goers will stroll through the Balli store and courtyards while soaking in the sounds of jazz, sipping sangria, and sampling delicious local cuisine by Chef Andrew Engolio of Cajun Café at the Market and Catering d'Orleans.  Attendees will also be entered to win jewelry from each of Balli's collections. The event is by invitation only and for credentialed press.  All guests and press are asked to RSVP by July 22 to jlz@stpauls-lakeview.org.

Balli said he actively seeks opportunities to give back to his community, "We are honored to be affiliated with St. Paul's Homecoming Center mission of restoring homes and lives."

Executive Director of St. Paul's Homecoming Center Connie Uddo said, "We appreciate Jose Balli for recognizing us as a key component of local disaster relief along with addressing the quality of life needs of some of our most underserved population-our senior citizens."

State Representative Jarred Brossett, a resident of Gentilly and Board Member of SPHC commented that "St. Paul's Homecoming Center is a model for non-profits. They seek to actively address immediate recovery and rebuilding needs in our community."
