The Louisiana Heroes Project was the beneficiary of an Elenian Club fundraiser held recently in the Black and Gold room at the New Orleans Fair Grounds.
The Louisiana Heroes Project provides emergency financial, education, employment and morale assistance to Louisiana service members, wounded warriors, veterans and their families. The Elenian Club is a philanthropic organization of women who delight in Italian heritage and culture.
Marita Romano, Carol Duplantis and June Kitchen organized the auction and parade of prizes. Faith Peperone, Mary Lynn Roberts and Frank Romano ran the raffle.
Marian Montalbano and Barbara Chifici arranged for the reservations and decorations. Guests included Sara and Gino Maniaci, from Cinisi, Sicily, Italy.
The third race was dedicated to the Elenian Club for Louisiana Heroes Project. It was won by Gold Megillah, ridden by jockey Robby Albarado.
