Bid on the Big Easy

Guest post by Board Member Judy Bradford

Here is a sneak peak at one of the many exciting live auction items you can bid on at the annual An Afternoon in the Admiral’s Garden fundraiser on June 24th, 2012. Visit the event site for more auction items.

The Big Easy   Explore New Orleans’s timeless, old-world charm; walk the French Quarter, renown for its music halls, antique and novelty shops, churches, museums and architecture; relax with a potent “Hurricane” at one of the city’s historic taverns and pubs; or step into famous restaurants and cafés to sample legendary fried oyster po’boys, red beans and rice, and crawfish étouffée.

Our New Orleans Jazz and Dining Experience includes:

  • A 3-night stay at the Renaissance Pere Marquette hotel, just steps from the famed “French Quarter” with daily breakfast for two.
  • A 6-course dinner paired with wine at the iconic “Commander’s Palace” Restaurant, named “most popular” and “best décor” by Zagat.
  • VIP Admission, including front-of-line entry, to the Preservation Hall Jazz Club
  • Round-trip airfare for 2 from any location in the contiguous 48 states and Canada on American Airlines
