2014 Whitney Bank Victory Ball
Victory Begins at Home: New Orleans 1944
Friday, May 16, 2014

Celebrate Victory Begins at Home: New Orleans 1944 at the Whitney Bank Victory Ball — one of New Orleans’ premier fundraising events. From the creation and production of the Higgins Boat to the tireless work of our influential community leaders, New Orleans left a permanent mark on the history of the war. Join Master of Ceremonies Cokie Boggs Roberts on this special occasion as the Museum awards its highest honor — The American Spirit Award — posthumously to Ambassador Lindy Boggs. Ambassador Boggs’ lifetime of public service makes her an exemplary candidate and the first woman recipient of the American Spirit Award.

The elegant affair begins with our exclusive Patron Party, followed by a seated dinner in the US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center catered by acclaimed restaurateur Chef John Besh and the American Sector restaurant. The evening will conclude with our fifth annual Otto Candies, LLC How Sweet It Is! Dessert & Dancing Soirée, where guests will enjoy sweet delights and dance the night away to live music in the Stage Door Canteen.
