The Neighborhood Development Foundation’s major annual fundraiser, “House Party,” was held this year in the First NBC Bank Lobby. Since 1986, the NDF has been instrumental in helping thousands of working families each year achieve their dream of home ownership. Senator Mary L. Landrieu and Michael Airhart, President of the Louisiana Mortgage Lenders Foundation, chaired the event. At a patron party, held earlier in the evening, food was provided by Marie’s Catering

Guest speakers at the gala held later in the evening included Karyn Kearney, Managing Director and Executive Vice President of the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and Ed Marshall, Public Relations Vice President of First NBC Bank. Guests bid on silent auction items such as a 5 day/4 night Jamaican getaway for 2 in Negril and a framed giclee piece signed by Terrance Osborne. The live local entertainment was provided by Clark Knighten’s Black Cat Productions, and decorations were provided by NDF board chairman Brenda Richard Montgomery.

Proceeds from the event will aid The Neighborhood Development Foundation’s Financial Fitness Learning Program that is designed to provide its participants with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to examine their financial status, build a good credit profile and create asset-building movements among persons who have low and moderate incomes. The evening’s festivities raised an estimated $75,000 that will further assist the NDF in their civic-minded goals.
