Family and friends numbering over 30 people from far and near gathered at Portobello’s on old Hammond Hwy to honor Keeva La’ Chanda Smith with a Surprise Birthday Party recently.

Smith is a faithful friend to all that meet her and she strives to meet the need of everyone that she meets. She lives to make another person’s life a success and heads a thriving single’s ministry and youth department at her church.

Smith is an educator and leader in Iberville Parish School System. The night was filled with fun, prizes, and surprises, words of praise, singing, and prayer for her new year.

Portobello’s saluted her with a rendition of Sparklers, which added to the excitement of celebrating and appreciating Smith.
