Nunez to host Annual Foundation Gala Jan 25

Jan 17th, 2014 | By | Category: News

The Nunez Community College Foundation will host its annual fundraising Gala on Saturday, January 25, on the college grounds, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

In a climate of major budget cuts to higher education, the Gala is a vital fundraising event for the college: All proceeds directly support Nunez students and programs by providing, for example, student scholarships, professional development for faculty and staff, and state-of-the-art equipment.

Gala patrons will enjoy an evening of live entertainment, drinks, food tastings from many of the New Orleans metro area’s most popular restaurants, and a silent auction featuring gifts from local business.

Nunez Chancellor, Dr. Thomas Warner, invites everyone to come enjoy the great food and entertainment, and learn more about the college and community.

“The Nunez Gala is a wonderful opportunity to show support for our students and understand how our wider communities benefit from their successes,” said Warner.

Tickets are $50 per person, and those interested in more information on sponsorships, gifts to the Foundation, tickets, and other details can call 504.278.6439 or visit www.nunez.edu.
