The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans Hosts Its 2013 ‘Goldring-Woldenberg Major Donor Dinner’

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans held its 2013 “Goldring-Woldenberg Major Donor Dinner” in February at the Windsor Court Hotel. The event, which was a black-tie affair, was the third annual celebration in honor of the generous supporting members who have assisted the federation with its yearly campaign.  

The evening was put together by a fabulous set of co-chairs: Morris and Cathy Bart; Richard and Vivian Cahn; and Dana Shepherd and Henry Miller, who are serving as the federation’s 2013 annual campaign chairs; and was also graciously hosted by Darryl and Louellen Berger.

With 56 guests, the dinner was held in the exquisite Windsor Board Room, which, along with the soft candlelight and delicate ivory linens, gave the evening an intimate atmosphere. The menu, which consisted of passed hors d’oeuvres, featured decadent butternut squash soup, baked sea bass with a ginger-citrus beurre blanc, chocolate-covered strawberries and tiramisu. While guests feasted, they were also serenaded by the magical melodies of Pianist Sanford Hinderlie and John Rankin on vocals. The Sazerac Company provided an open bar.

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans serves as “the fundraising umbrella organization that raises funds to benefit the Jewish Community Center, Jewish Family Service, the Community Day School and Tulane Hillel, in addition to numerous other community and international non-profits,” according to Caitrin Gladow, the federation’s marketing director. In accordance with Jewish tradition, the federation also works “to assure the continuity of the Jewish people in America.”
