Leading from the Heart Awards Breakfast Celebrates Women in Hospitality

February 27 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Join Les Dames d’Escoffier International (LDEI) New Orleans for a very special breakfast to celebrate the Leading from the Heart Awards 2024. Recipients include Sinnidra Taylor, founder of Codey’s Nola commissary kitchen and incubator and Thuy Pham, owner of Nola Nite Market – the monthly pop-up at the Westwego Farmers Market. Each of these women in hospitality will be awarded individual $2,500 grants.

In keeping with LDEI’s philanthropic mission, the awards honor women in the 10-parish Greater New Orleans community who have made a positive impact in hospitality, sustainability, food justice and/or public health. According to LDEI President Christa Cotton, “Supporting women and our community are the core tenets of our organization. We were thrilled with the overwhelming response to last year’s Leading From The Heart Awards and we’re excited to continue this initiative. I am especially pleased that last year’s recipients are passing the torch by presenting the awards to this year’s recipients in person, and I cannot wait to see how these women in our community use the funds to further their impact.”

“As we reviewed the outstanding nominees, it became evident that these two remarkable women have not only elevated themselves but have also emerged as trailblazers in our community” said Dee Lavigne, LDEI Vice President of Philanthropy.
