2018 Azúcar Ball Press Release

2018 Azúcar Ball Press Release

The New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation (“NOHHF”) will host its annual fundraiser, theAzúcar Ball on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans Hotel, located at 601 Loyola Avenue, in downtown New Orleans.  The theme for this year is Una Vez en Nueva Orleans (Once Upon a Time in New Orleans).Presented by Pan-American Life Insurance Group, the 2018 Azúcar Ball will start with a Patron Party at 7 p.m. followed by the Ball at 8 p.m., featuring the food from the best local restaurants, great Latin music and a silent auction of wonderful items.

Proceeds from the event provide scholarships to high-achieving high school Hispanic students in our community, who have demonstrated – through their academic record – the desire and ability to excel. Since the work and expense of this NOHHF fundraiser is put together by volunteers, almost every penny that is contributed (after the cost of the event) goes to scholarships for these outstanding young adults.

The NOHHF is a non-profit community organization that was founded in 1989 to cultivate and promote the Hispanic heritage of New Orleans and the Southern region. The Foundation provides talented Hispanic high school students with scholarships at some of the best private and parochial local schools participating in the NOHHF Scholarships Program.  The Foundation also grants one-year college scholarships to outstanding seniors from our local public high schools. Throughout the years, the NOHHF has awarded over 800 scholarships to high school students from our area.

President of the NOHHF Board of Directors is Ileana Suquet. Chairs of the 2018 Azúcar Ball Committee are Gracia-María Zaccaro and Rossana Bracho.  This year’s Gálvez Cup award will be presented to The Brennan Family.

Tickets and Sponsorships are available at www.501auctions.com/azucarball

Publisher's Note

We are beyond excited to feature Amanda Shaw on our June cover!

We love everything Amanda represents. Not many people are aware of her Latin heritage, and it’s hard to know about it from seeing her performances on stage and to see her love and amazing showcase of Louisiana’s music. So, it’s hard to imagine someone who is such a Louisiana icon grew up partaking in Guatemalan cultural traditions.

Featuring Amanda Shaw on Viva NOLA is a dream come true! It is individuals like her who represent exactly what we are trying to convey.

We are part of and love Louisiana. We enjoy its culture while also embracing our Latin heritage. We utilize our talents and skills to contribute to making our home a better place, and we serve as ambassadors of this region wherever we go.

This is what VIVA NOLA Magazine celebrates--a connection of cultures and communities. And who better than Amanda Shaw to perfectly tell the story of many of us who call New Orleans and Louisiana home.

Thank you, Amanda for opening your heart and sharing your story with us. You definitely make us proud!
