ABOUT THE GREENWAY SOIRÉEThe mission of Friends of Lafitte Greenway is to build, program, and promote the Lafitte Greenway as a great public space. Our seventh annual gala, the Greenway Soirée, is a sophisticated event to celebrate the Greenway. Approximately 450 Greenway supporters will be treated to food from some of the city’s best restaurants as they dance to live music, sample craft cocktails, beer, and wine, mingle, and shop our auction. We would like to invite you to participate by providing a signature dish for one of our small plate tasting stations.
