In 2011, local entrepreneur and tourism professional, Diane B. Lyons, had an epiphany. Women are the backbone of our community. New Orleans celebrates everything – why not women?
Hence the creation of FestiGals, a nonprofit organization that inspires, connects and celebrates women while supporting causes important to their well-being. Lyons focused the expertise and resources of ACCENT-DMC, an award-winning corporate meeting and event company, to developing FestiGals, which has raised more than $176,000 for women struggling with cancer and domestic violence.
From a bodacious weekend experience to Cocktails & Conversations events, FestiGals positively impacts women in our community.
