Parkway Partners will award its Green Spirit Award to Michael Karam and Jared Zeller during its Feast With the Stars patron party Oct. 8.
The award recognizes the men’s leadership in restoring the New Orleans tree canopy through highly effective tree-planting projects. Zeller reintroduced large live oaks along Bayou St. John, while Karam led numerous tree-planting efforts in the Irish Channel and Marigny while also saving trees from the recent streetcar construction on Rampart Street.
The Feast with the Stars jazz brunch will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 11, at Gallier Hall, 545 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans. The patron party will take place from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 8 at the home of Cathy and Mark McRae, 1347 Moss St., New Orleans. For tickets, visitparkwaypartnersnola.org or call (504) 620-2224.
