Beautifying the Community

Publisher’s Note

If you’ve driven around Jefferson Parish over the last year, you’ve probably noticed some of the great developments being made on Veterans and Causeway boulevards. Jefferson Beautification, Inc. (JBI) has coordinated numerous projects since 1990, but its recent efforts are especially visible with new fountains, statues, art installations and more springing up in the area. These endeavors are incredibly beneficial to both the residential and business communities of Jefferson Parish.

I am honored to be serving as the corporate chair for the Parkway Promenade XXVI, the largest and most crucial fundraising event of the year for JBI. Held at Chateau Country Club on Sunday, April 2, this year’s theme is “April in Paris,” and promises to be an amazing evening of dinner and dancing in celebration, and in support of these continuing projects.

Event Chair Sharon Hannahan and JBI President Debbie Settoon are leaders spearheading JBI initiatives to add beauty to Jefferson Parish, spreading feelings of pride in the community.

If you would like to sponsor or attend this year’s Parkway Promenade, contact Charlotte Ruiz at (504) 887-8992 or visit JeffersonBeautification.org for ticket information.

I hope to see you there.
