The NOCCA Institute invites you to its annual fundraising gala, ART&SOUL! This year's event will be held on Saturday, May 13 at NOCCA's Chevron Forum, in New Orleans' historic Faubourg Marigny.
As always, ART&SOUL attendees will enjoy fantastic food from NOCCA's Culinary Arts students and New Orleans' favorite restaurants, including our own Press Street Station. Our Press Street Block party features the newest members of the NOCCA family, Press Street Gardens' baby goats! Guests will dance the night away to great music by the Preservation Hall All-Stars, Sweet Crude, and Cha Wa. And of course, ART&SOUL will host its magnificent silent and live auction, with artwork, vacation packages, and more. The silent auction offers mobile bidding, so guests can partake in the fun no matter where they are.
This year's ART&SOUL co-chairs are Jeanette and Ben Jaffe and Laura and John Sillars. The ART&SOUL auction chair is Susan Tullos.
