70th Celebration

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.
