On behalf of the Le Gala de la Bonne Vie Committee and the Board of Directors of the National Kidney Foundation of Louisiana, we would like to extend our personal thanks to Andrea Mistretta for creating our 2017 Gala invites, response cards, and program cover. We are truly “lucky” to know Andrea and to have her beautiful artwork and talent lend itself to our Gala.

Lucky 7 – Andrea Mistretta’s studio may be 1307 miles away from New Orleans but the artist’s heart has always been way down yonder. She turns her versatile talent from the painterly skills of creating a popular annual Mardi Gras poster series in New Orleans for 33 years to her digital art capabilities for the invites and programs for The National Kidney Foundation of Louisiana’s 27th annual “Le Gala de la Bonne Vie”. The May 21st event will be held at the New Orleans Marriott Convention Center. When director Torie Kranze presented Andrea with the “Lucky 7″ theme, Mistretta doubled the LUCK and designed a cubist inspired spectrum of concentric lucky sevens tucked into a spring palette lucky rainbow, and rendered a callihraphic kidney shape into the word Gala. The “Lucky 7″ themed event honors 7 very special “Kidney Heroes”. – Ms. Mistretta will again donate an original painting with The Gala’s Lucky 7 theme and include on the back of it a calligraphed: “Thank you for being a Kidney Hero!”
