Mr. Legs 2017
Mr. Legs contestants once again took Generations Hall by storm to raise money for Bridge House/Grace House. Emcees Mike Hoss and WWL-TV’s Natalie Shepherd kept the party going while judges Lauren “Fleurty Girl” Haydel, Chriss Knight, Chris Reade, and Denise Gerarve (of the Pussyfooters) scrutinized the costumes, routines, and – most importantly – legs of the contestants.
More than 1000 attendees enjoyed CanCan and Jazz performances by Les Rebelles NOLA and an appearance by The Pussyfooters. The silent auction featured more than 60 fabulous packages, and Kendra Scott hosted a Trunk Show with 20% of the proceeds benefitting Bridge House/Grace House. Copeland’s of New Orleans fed VIP attendees, and Nacho Mama’s Mexican Grill, Royal Palm, Zea’s Rotisserie & Grill, Don’s Seafood Hut, Laurent’s Meat Market, Rocky & Carlo’s, Cornet, Sammy’s Food & Deli Service, Flower Power Confectionery, and Pralines by Jean were among more than 40 local restaurants at the event.
Congratulations to all our winners! Mr. Legs 2017 was a huge success once again. 2016 was a record breaking year and 2017 exceeded our expectations even further raising even more money than ever before.
