On the evening of the sixth of April at the Chateau Estates Golf and Country Club, more than 300 guests attended this year’s Parkway Promenade fundraiser. The Hawaiian-themed “It’s a Luau!” benefit featured an island-themed decor of bright orchids, grass skirts and glowing torches.

Parkway Promenade provides funding for the important projects of Jefferson Beautification, Inc., including tree planting, beautification and environmental education projects in Jefferson Parish. Event co-chairs Connie Casey and Kay Donnelley hosted an evening of dancing, food and fun including music and hula dance lessons by group Hawaii 504.  

The evening featured a selection of contests and prizes, including door prize, raffles and a dance ensemble contest judged by Jefferson Parish Councilman Paul Johnston and local makeup artist Jamie Balser. Chef Denis Hutley of Dickie Brennan’s Tableau prepared Polynesian cuisine for the evening, including whole soy-roasted pig and an open bar featuring themed cocktails such as Mai Tais, Seabreezes and more.
Fifty-seven local restaurants and food purveyors donated dine around certificates available for purchase at the event, to the delight of many guests.
