The Elenian Club recently held a fashion show at Chateau Golf and Country Club in Kenner to benefit the Louisiana Heroes Project.

The Louisiana Heroes Project provides emergency financial, education, employment assistance and morale 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.

The afternoon of networking and fun featured not only a fashion show produced by Dillard’s, but a raffle of more than 50 gift baskets. Chairwomen were Gloria Bruno, Barbara Chifici and Carole Duplantis.

Marita Romano is president of the Elenian Club. For information about the club, send email to
