Hope Gala


Kim Sport, a three-time cancer survivor, and honorary chair Phyllis Taylor chaired the elegant 10th annual American Cancer Society Hope Gala honoring 13 individuals that represent the spirit of the organization and the dedication of all those involved in the fight against cancer. The fundraiser, held at the Shops of Canal Place, benefited the American Cancer Society’s Patrick F. Taylor Lodge in New Orleans and included live and silent auctions and a lavish spread of culinary delights from legendary New Orleans restaurants. Live entertainment was provided by the Bucktown Allstars and Angela Hill, who served as the Spirit Award ceremony hostess.
