VCPORA Gala 2022 – A Fête For All Saints (and Sinners)

The VCPORA Gala is our most important annual event and one that offers our community the chance to support and celebrate the Vieux Carré and its oldest guardian, VCPORA. We remain firmly committed to defending this remarkable neighborhood and, with your help, will continue advocating to increase residential opportunities and quality of life in the French Quarter. The success of these efforts is a direct result of your support!


 

We are thrilled to announce our 2022 Annual Gala, “A Fête for All Saints” will take place on November 12, 2022 at the Carmelite Monastery.

 

 

Designed by James Freret and completed in 1895 for the Discalced Carmelite nuns, the Carmelite Monastery at 1236 N. Rampart Street, will soon transform nearly one acre and introduce 25 new apartments for rent into the French Quarter community. We hope you will join us to celebrate at one of the most ambitious and creative adaptive-reuse projects the French Quarter has seen in decades. 

For the first, and perhaps the last, time ever – a private, self-guided tour into the meandering courtyards linking the various structures within the grounds will be available to Patron Level (and above) ticket holders only. The main event will be held in the stunning Gothic Revival chapel and its flanking courtyards.

Guests are invited to dance the night away with Smoking Time Jazz Club, and French Quarter local Tim Laughlin.

We’d like to extend a Special Thanks to Sam Mickal Solomon with Bancroft Property Investments, LLC   and Rick Fifield for allowing us to celebrate this historic space with you all!


 

The night will be filled with sumptuous food from Pigéon Caterers of New OrleansPiece of Meat Butcher, and the Bayou Beer and Wine Garden team.  Libations will be flowing thanks to Brieux Carre Brewing and 73 Distilling Co.
Expect some more surprises to join the feast!
Don’t forget the fun of bidding on the best our local businesses have to offer!
Thanks to our generous donors, donations are flooding in from the city’s best restaurants, galleries, artists, professional services, and boutiques.  The auction will be a great opportunity to pick up some holiday gifts on your list!
