2017 Gala


Friday, November 3, 2017

French Quarter Citizens is planning an exciting evening at the historic North Rampart Street Monastery on Friday, November 3rd, 2017. This annual Gala, our most important fundraiser, supports our organization’s efforts to preserve the French Quarter and protect it from the daily impact of nine million visitors each year, graffiti, large vehicles, crime and developers.

The historic Monastery, once home to the cloistered Carmelite nuns, has recently been transformed into a spectacular event space! Join us for an evening of live music, lively dancing, ample seating, fabulous food presented by some of our very best local restaurants, an open bar featuring a variety of exciting specialty cocktails and premium liquor and a live and silent auction. Sponsors and patrons are invited to join us for an exclusive pre-party from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m., with the Gala event to follow from 7:30 until 11:00.

This year, French Quarter Citizens is thrilled to welcome Coleman E. Adler II, President of Adler’s Jewelry, as the 2017 Honorary Chair and Peter Trapolin, FAIA, Founding Principal of Trapolin-Peer Architects, as our 2017 Honoree. Both play important roles as preservationists and philanthropists in our community and have made impactful contributions towards the preservation of the French Quarter.
