The National Council of Jewish Women will hold its annual spring fundraiser, “Puttin’ on the Glitz with a Gem of a Party,” at 5 p.m. Sunday in the Napoleon Room of the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.
After a patron party with entertainment by John Rankin, there will be dinner, a silent auction and a show by the Big Easy Buddies, a male quartet and seven-piece band performing tunes of the ’50s and ’60s.
The event will pay tribute to honorary section vice presidents Joan S. Berenson, Celia Katz, Flo Schornstein and Sara Stone. These past presidents of the council’s New Orleans section have been recognized as permanent honorary vice presidents because of their continued involvement and commitment to the New Orleans section for more than 50 years.
Orchestrating the event are co-chairs Betty Kohn and Loel Weil Samuel, President June Leopold and development Vice President Barbara Greenberg, and committee members Shellye Farber, Amanda Herman, Sherril Herman, Barbara Kaplinsky, Tricia Kirschman, Fran Koch, Millie Kohn, Amy Malish, Gale Pick, Joyce Pulitzer, Rollie Rabin, Beth Rosenthal, Mimi Schlesinger, Dana Shepard, Kathy Shepard, Sue Singer and Missy Taranto.
