Presents our Seventh Annual Gala

Daughters of Charity Foundation of New Orleans will host its Seventh Annual “Keeping Our Promises” Gala Friday, March 23 at Messina’s at the Terminal. This exciting event begins with a Patron Party from 7 to 8 p.m. The Gala, which includes the presentation of the Inspired Cross Award and a Silent Auction, immediately follows until 11 p.m.

Dr. Donald T. Erwin, chief executive officer at St. Thomas Community Health Center; Dr. Robert M. Post, chief medical officer at Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans; Dr. Sandra L. Robinson, pediatrician at Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans; and Dr. Gary M. Wiltz, chief executive officer and chief health officer at Teche Action Clinic in Franklin, have been selected as 2018  Inspired Cross Award recipients. 

“We’re honored to present Inspired Cross Awards to Drs. Erwin, Post, Robinson and Wiltz,” said Michael G. Griffin, President and CEO of Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans. “This distinguished group of health care professionals has worked tirelessly to provide the highest quality care to all Louisianians – regardless of their ability to pay, and their commitment to this cause is laudable.”

The Inspired Cross Award is presented annually to individuals and/or organizations who have worked with Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans (DCSNO), a non-profit health care organization, to “keep its promises” to provide health care for those in need, and to transform health care through innovation and courage. 

The “Keeping Our Promises” Gala also serves as a fundraiser to support the organization’s mission to provide high-quality, compassionate care to all, with special attention to those who are struggling.
Dr. Robert and Mrs. Joanne Marier are chairs for this year’s Gala. Entertainment will be provided by Royal Essence Band.
