Harriet, who suffered a fatal stroke in September 2010, was not only a long time dedicated employee of the JCC but a committed community volunteer, philanthropist and teacher of Mah Jongg. Harriet taught hundreds of women both young and old and even a few men, the ancient board game of Mah Jongg. Many years ago she was a featured instructor at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival cultural tent and founded and directed the JCC Annual Crescent City Mah Jongg Tournament which ran for four years prior to her untimely death. Therefore, we have renamed it the Harriet Wainer Kugler Memorial Mah Jongg Tournament in her honor.
