A tried and true event, now in its 23rd year, is the Boys & Girls Clubs annual Steak & Burger Dinner at the Cajundome Convention Center. Party Girl looks forward to this one each year, as it's really a showcase for the club's talented kids. In addition to steaks and burgers, the event includes a silent auction. Seen strolling the auction items were Mary Galyean, Benny and Sudie Mann, Dr. Barry Bohn, Valerie Keller and Christine Lemoine. I also ran into lots of folks from Stone Energy, the major sponsor of the event. But the high point of the evening is always the ever-popular performances by the boys and girls, who practice their singing and dancing moves all summer long.
After the performances, Party Girl dropped by Charley G's for an end-of-the-evening cocktail. And boy was I glad I did, because I caught Elizabeth Abdalla celebrating her big 5-0 with an appletini. Her husband, Harold, daughter, Jasmine, and friends Preston and Angie Miller with their daughter, Madison, were all there to help her mark the big event. Happy Birthday, Elizabeth! You don't look a day over 30.
