East Jefferson General Hospital Auxiliary (EJGH) presented its 38th annual “Great Lady/Great Gentleman Awards Luncheon” on Sunday, April 6 at the Audubon Tea Room. Chaired by former president Jean Rice and current board member Sharon Marchand, the proceeds from the luncheon went directly to the EJGH Nursing Education and Leadership Support, as well as the Nursing Certification Reimbursement Program. Nurse Scholarship Recipients in attendance included Barbara Carlson and Joseph Sims.

A patron party preceding the luncheon was held at the home of interior designer Anne Favret and hosted by chairs Kathleen McGregor and Marguerite Ricks.

The luncheon boasted a sold-out crowd of more than 300 guests, and honored Carol Becklemeiner, Dianne Breaux, Tommy Fonseca, Patricia Golemi, Willie La Nasa, Sonda Stacey, Karen Villavaso and Denise Woodward.

The lunch featured an arugula and cranberry salad with fileted beef medallions and lemon mousse to the dulcet tones of the Arnie Johnson Trio. Shelley Brown of Fox News presided over the festivities as Mistress of Ceremonies, including an exciting auction that featured a beautiful solid wood wine rack, filled with high-end libations.
