The 70th Celebration on Saturday was a big success. The weather was perfect, the food was great and we had a wonderful escorted parade through uptown New Orleans.
I would like to thank:
- Porsche of New Orleans for their sponsorship of Mardi Gras Region as well as hosting the party at the dealership. They also provided the T-shirts and lanyards. A big thank you goes to General Manager Ryan DeToro, Jennifer Taylor, Sean Kerwin and the rest of the PNO team.
- Rick and Tina Payton for their ideas and help in putting on these events as well as their tireless efforts for the club in general.
- Ben Gravolet for designing the credentials everyone received. The design featured Ben’s photograph of his 356. The 356 was supposed to lead our parade but unfortunately, it had a mechanical problem right before the event. Ben put a lot of work into getting the car ready for us.
- New Orleans and Jefferson Parish Motorcycle Officers for a great escorted parade.
For those who didn’t make the parade, we had a photographer on St. Charles Ave. take a photo of every car as we drove by. These photos will be free to download as soon as they are made available to us.
