Greater Mid-City Business Association Hosts State of Mid-City Luncheon
NEW ORLEANS – On Tuesday afternoon, the Greater Mid-City Business Association (GMCBA) will host its fourth annual State of Mid-City Luncheon, and honor Mark’s Mid-City Service Station as the 2019 Mid-City Business of the Year and Sidney D. Torres IV as the 2019 Mid-City Person of the Year.
Mark’s Mid-City Service Station, owned by Mark Boudreaux, has served the Mid-City neighborhood for 26 years.
Torres continues to invest in Mid-City real estate and businesses. He recently established his IV Waste company headquarters in the area.
During the luncheon, which takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Cannery (3803 Toulouse St.), more than 50 local business owners and association members will have a chance to network with one another. City councilmembers Joe Giarusso and Jay Banks, among other city leaders, will speak and answer questions from the audience.
Each year, GMCBA board members nominate any business or person they feel has contributed to the betterment of Mid-City, said Tim Levy, the president of the organization. After nominations are received, an online vote from the board members determines the honorees.
Previous honorees include Krewe of Endymion, city councilmember Susan Guidry, Friends of Lafitte Greenway, and Jay Nix, the owner of Parkway Bakery. Tickets for the event are $25. To purchase tickets, visit the event’s page at MidCityBiz.com.
