This past weekend we took a trip "Somewhere Beyond the Sea," to enjoy Children's Hospital New Orleans 41st annual Sugarplum Ball presented by LEMOINE. The event was magical with amazing oceanic decor, magnificent aerial acts and costumed entertainment along with fantastic live music.

Beginning in 1981, the black tie affair serves as a charity event funding the expansion of the hospital's mission by creating more essential programs, advanced technology and innovative health care delivery; with a purpose to provide excellent healthcare to children of all circumstances.

Held at Mardi Gras World, the Sugarplum Ball offered amazing food from restaurants like, Galatoire's Restaurant, Superior Seafood, Acme Oyster house and many more.

The Ball with a purpose celebrates the many donors and other guests who aid in caring for the health of the children of New Orleans. There were several auction items available including featured holiday getaways and signed sports paraphernalia. Other items included, amazing local art work, pelicans tickets and a Treasure Chest surprise. Once the biddings closed, patrons waited for the highlight of the night which was the auction of a black Infiniti car provided by the Ray & Jessica Brandt Foundation.

This event was definitely an funtime with an amazing purpose. For information on next year's ball, please visit
