Men and Women of Fashion to Host 42nd Annual Prix d’Elegance Awards Luncheon

April 15, 2014
  • Location: Hilton New Orleans Riverside
  • Address: 2 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 70130
  • Times: 10:30am
  • Admission: Tickets for the 42nd annual Prix d’Elegance Luncheon are $100 (table of 10 for $1000), which includes a champagne reception.
  • Contact: NOBA
  • Phone: 504-522-0996
  • Venue: Hilton New Orleans Riverside

The Men and Women of Fashion will host the 42nd annual Prix d’Elegance Luncheon at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, at 10:30 AM. This event, which will introduce the 2013 honorees, will once more benefit BRAVO, the Ballet Resource and Volunteer Organization, which provides critical funds for the nationally award-winning education programs and scholarship funds of the New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA).

For over four decades, the Men of Fashion and Women of Fashion have paid tribute to dozens of men and women who exemplify unique personal style as well as excellence through business, civic and charitable endeavors that specifically better the community in which they live. More than 600 people will gather to celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments of the 10 men and 10 women chosen by the memberships of the two prestigious organizations (all former honorees). New this year, award recipients from 1982-1983 will be honored in the Walk of Fame. Additionally, two honorees – one man and one woman – will be inducted into the Hall of Fame for their continued contributions to the community.

The 2013 Hall of Fame Honorees are Kathleen Mix and C. Michael Winters. The 2013 Honorees are Allison G. Ashy, Michael Brinkman, Elaine Toscano Grundmeyer, Holley Haag, Carol Hall, Alanah Odoms Hebert, Russ Herman, Diane Hollis, Doug Kilton, Bivian “Sonny” Lee, Ted Martin, Manuel Martinez, Todd P. Murphy, Leslie Andree Perrin, Harry A. Roach, Paige Royer, Suzanne Scott, Carol Short, Wayne E. Woods and Michael S. Yenni.

One of the season’s most glamorous luncheons, the event will celebrate the Golden Age of Hollywood with a showing of spring fashions from Chatta Box Boutique and Jeff’s Haberdashery. Sandra Stage Chaisson, event chair, comments, “It is an honor to be asked by the membership to chair the luncheon for a second year. With a few surprises planned by the committee, I’m sure it will be a luncheon to remember!” The event will also include champagne upon arrival, an exclusive auction of items donated by local businesses, and a raffle of a $2500 Rubenstein’s shopping spree and a Mikimoto pearl necklace donated by Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry.

With a growing enrollment of over 500 youth a semester and high national profile – remarkable for a tuition-free after-school program – NOBA and BRAVO are making a huge impact in the lives of students, a mission that Men of Fashion President Lee Giorgio says the organizations proudly support. “Our style is bold, and our philanthropic quests are endless. The more we give, the more we receive. That is our culture!” says Giorgio.

“With over 5,000 dance classes and activities annually, NOBA has leveled the playing field, making it possible for any child who wants quality, professional instruction to receive it completely tuition-free,” says Women of Fashion President Jacquee Carvin. Annually, scholarships are provided for talented youth to study at prestigious summer schools, including American Ballet Theatre and The Ailey School. Other students decide to remain in the city to study with the national artists who are brought to New Orleans for the NORDC/NOBA Center for Dance Intensive, a 20-year partnership with NORDC.

Tickets for the 42nd annual Prix d’Elegance Luncheon are $100 (table of 10 for $1000), which includes a champagne reception. For more information or to order tickets, contact NOBA at 504.522.0996.
