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

Ready for the outdoors!

Although we do not have very well defined seasons, the weather changes enough to create different vibes in and around the city.

The moderate Spring weather accompanied with sunny clear skies is inviting to get back to the outdoors and be more active. The backyard also gets more use in the form of the very Louisiana tradition of the crawfish boil, which we learn more about in our food section.

Short day-trips are perfect during Spring and the Northshore offers some amazing destinations for nature and food lovers. Just sitting down on the bank of the Tchefuncte River, looking at the boats pass by can be a relaxing change of pace and scenery.

In this edition, we visit the Northshore to explore some of the Latin restaurants in the area. We will be coming back to enjoy the different places and activities that the Northshore has to offer. St. Tammany hosts a vineyard, a safari, strawberry and blueberry patches, breweries, swamp tours, museums, kayaking, and tubing, among so many other interesting things. The Northshore is the perfect destination when you need a little getaway.

But for now, we prepare to get outdoors in New Orleans to enjoy the great music during French Quarter Fest and to see the national and international superstars coming to Jazzfest. See you out there!
