Join us in this Anniversary Celebration
Honorary Chair: Gayle Benson
The Women’s Guild of the New Orleans Opera Association will present the 30th annual Mad Hatter’s Luncheon at 11a.m., on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, at the New Orleans Hilton Riverside.
This year’s luncheon celebrates our 30th anniversary and will feature a fashion show by SAKS Fifth Avenue. There will also be a celebrity hat judging contest, a celebrity hat auction, raffled items and a silent auction. Alice, The Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts, and the Rabbit – all from Alice in Wonderland – will also be attendance.
For the first time this year we are having an Esquire award for the best attired gentlemen at the luncheon.
The Mad Hatters Luncheon is one of the two major fundraisers produced by the Women’s Guild to benefit the New Orleans Opera Association.
“The New Orleans Opera Association is an essential component of the New Orleans cultural arts community, and events like this luncheon make it possible for the association to continue to grow and develop its vast programming, both on the main stage and in the community,” said Mary Katherine Lonatro-Tusa, this year’s Opera Fundraising Chair. “The Women’s Guild is proud to continue to support such an amazing organization.”
