Alexis de Tocqueville Gala honoring Marcus Brown

Each Year, the Alexis de Tocqueville Society of United Way of Southeast Louisiana presents its highest award for exemplary leadership in community volunteerism and philanthropy. 

We are privileged to announce that Entergy Corporation’s Marcus V. Brown – philanthropist, public servant, and volunteer – is the 2021 recipient of our distinguished award. Marcus encompasses all the elements of a deserving recipient of the Alexis de Tocqueville Award, including an extensive career of service to the betterment of our community with no desire for personal recognition and a lasting commitment to United Way’s mission to eradicate poverty.

The celebration will occur on the evening of Thursday, February 10, at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans. 

Tocqueville Society Members: Discounted tickets in recognition of your extraordinary philanthropic support are available for $125 per ticket.  The cost of the event is $250 per person. Sponsorship benefits are also available.  

We look forward to celebrating Marcus’ outstanding contributions to our community with you. We are following the City of New Orleans' COVID-19 guidelines (please click here for the most up-to-date information) and all participants must show proof prior to entry of a negative antigen or PCR COVID-19 test taken within 24 hours prior to event.
