Jewish Children’s Regional Service (JCRS) will present Jewish Roots of Fashion on March 30, 2019 at the New Orleans Marriott, 555 Canal Street. This will be the 8th JCRS Jewish Roots gala, which since beginning the series has become the signature Jewish gathering in New Orleans with patrons from across the community and the Mid-South in attendance.
The 2019 Jewish Roots gala will honor Mrs. Betty Kohn — who will be turning 95 years young just weeks before the event — for her support of JCRS through the establishment of the endowed Betty & Ira Kohn Camp Scholarship Fund. Co-Chairs of the Gala are Loel Samuel and Sue Singer.
The event will feature a style show curated and presented by Dillard’s at Lakeside Mall that highlights Jewish designers and incorporates professional models as well as JCRS “success stories” – former JCRS aid recipients who have become civic and professional leaders. The evening will also include a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres created by Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts and its family of restaurants followed by a seated dinner. A silent auction focused on boutique shopping, restaurants and once-in-a-lifetime vacations will round out the evening.
