IN the Spotlight Lee Financial Partners, LLC, Client Appreciation Event Blue skies and the waters of Lake Ponchatrain were an inviting backdrop for the Lee Financial Partners, LLC, Client Appreciation Event at The Lakehouse in Mandeville. Each year, Jim and Mary Lee host a special gathering to celebrate with their clients and support their favorite causes and charities, with reinvesting in our community as a resonating theme. This year, the Healing Arts Initiative at St. Tammany Parish Hospital was the focus, with Chyrl Corrizo, manager of the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at St. Tammany Parish Hospital, as the featured speaker. Mary Lee, chairman of the Healing Arts Initiative, spoke of the local, regional and national impact of the healing arts and referred to the initiative’s upcoming auction and fundraiser. Artwork from the most recent installation at the hospital was on display. Handcrafted “Super Bowls” by the “Little Rembrandts” Program at Lyon Elementary were on hand for all to see and will soon be available for online auction at biddingforgood. com/HealingArts. Many guests began to bid for their very own “Super Bowl” to help heal others. Jim Lee spoke about meeting the challenges of our economic climate and the importance of understanding new tax law regulations. While enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, guests listened to the music of harpist Jessica Meltz.
