Rollicking Party for Friends of New Orleans

New Orleans and Washington, D.C., converged in Denver Sunday evening, as political reporters and politicians in town for the Democratic National Convention exhaled for a moment at the Friends of New Orleans All-Star Jam-Balaya at the Fillmore Auditorium.

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.); Democratic consultant, analyst and Roll Call columnist Donna Brazile; and CNN’s Anderson Cooper were just a few of the familiar faces at the event, held to shine a light on the city of New Orleans, still making a comeback from the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Dittus Communications helped organize the event, and Roll Call newspaper was media co-sponsor.

The hurricane drinks were flowing and the food plentiful at the Mardis Gras-themed celebration, which was scheduled to keep rocking until 2 a.m. local time.
