The 13th annual Ladies in Red Gala will honor New Orleans jazz musicians and the institutions that support them while raising funds for heritage preservation programming. Honorees are Lucien Barbarin, Leah Chase, Benny Jones, Freddie Lonzo, Herlin Riley, and the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts, Educational Institution.

The event chairs are Nicole Blackmon Lewis and Anna & Adam Breaux. Honorary chairs are writer Michael Lewis and trumpeter Irvin Mayfield. The African American Heritage Preservation Program chair is Edgar Chase, III. NOCCA Jazz Ensemble will provide music for the Patron Party, and Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs will perform for the Gala. Guests will enjoy New Orleans cuisine and an open bar, including specialty cocktails by artisan spirit Smooth Ambler.

The African American Heritage Preservation Program (AAHP) at the PRC identifies and places plaques on former homes of jazz musicians, generating awareness of the cultural significance of the city’s older neighborhoods. The heritage education program My City, My Home teaches schoolchildren the importance of our architecture, culture and cityscape while they learn valuable life skills. Ladies in Red is not only a great party and honors our jazz musicians, but it makes these programs possible.
