“Home is Where the Art Is” – Hosted by East St. Tammany Habitat for Humanity. A fun filled night of art, music and food for the wonderful cause of raising money for East St. Tammany Habitat for Humanity.
The night’s gala and art auction was to promote the continued effort for the East St. Tammany Habitat for Humanity to continue to provide the citizens of Slidell, Pearl River, and Lacombe with affordable housing for families who qualify.
The East St. Tammany Habitat for Humanity also took this as an opportunity to honor the “Rosie’s” who were led by 5 women of distinction in the East St. Tammany Parish area.
The five women of distinction honored that evening included:
•Louisiana Senator Sharon Hewitt, District 1
•St. Tammany Parish President Pat Brister
•East St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer Dawn Sharpe
•Adele Bruce Smith, wife of St. Tammany Sheriff Randy Smith
•Glenda Drennan, wife of Slidell Mayor Freddy Drennan
Each leader assembled a team of ladies and they were all apart of the recent Habitat Women Build in May. The group used the “Rosie the Riveter” to symbolize female power and “We Can Do It!” slogan for the volunteer day in which they all worked on the construction of a Habitat for Humanity home built in Slidell.
The “Rosie’s” were in attendance for the night, and they received a pin for their participation and involvement in this all-important group of hard working and dedicated ladies.
