The stars of I Love Lucy, Desi Arnaz, Lucille Ball, William Frawley, and Vivan Vance, at NORD's Lyons Center, November 26, 1956. Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel were in town to attend the New Orleans Crippled Children's Hospital's annual ball at the Roosevelt Hotel. During a busy day before the ball, they were made honorary citizens for the day in the City Council Chambers, received the keys to the city and had sandwiches and coffee in the Mayor's Parlor, and enjoyed lunch and a tour aboard the Dock Board's yacht, the Good Neighbor, -- and they appeared at the Lyons Center before a crowd of 5000 NORD kids and golden-agers in an informal half-hour performance. This photograph was taken for the Item.
