Local artist Tuna recently unveiled and autographed copies his latest creation, a print titled “Coastal Paradise: We Love This Place,” at a gala hosted by the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans. Celebrity bartenders Zach Strief and Mike McKenzie served up signature cocktails, while Jeremy Davenport kept the crowd hopping. Sponsored by Coastal Shoring, the event will benefit the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation’s Save Our Coast program for coastal restoration. Prints are available at all First Bank and Trust locations, with 100 percent of the proceeds from every print sold going to the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation.
