PWC 2016-2017 Year in Review Photos

The New Orleans Dock Fest was a huge success.  The evening began with cocktails at individual homes then music and dinner at the Palisades Country Club.

 PWC collected items to fill 50 “Comfort Bags” for the Pink House.   The bags help newly diagnosed breast cancer patients better cope with chemotherapy. Bags can be found at the Pink House as well local Oncology offices. The Pink House is a sanctuary for the hopeful  transition for treatment to cure.  As a one of a kind one stop shop the Pink House serves breast cancer survivors with wellness education, a library research center, healing garden, fitness center and nutrition center, arts and craft workshops and mentoring.
