The New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation (NOHHF) is proud to announce Azucar Ball 2013, Noche de Tango.  On November 16, 2013, the New Orleans Sugar Mill will be transformed back to the golden age of tango, with live tango performances and cuisine and cocktails inspired by Buenos Aires, Argentina.  The evening will feature music by Julio and Cesar, an outdoor cigar lounge, scotch and whiskey bar, cuisine from the city's top rated restaurants, a silent auction featuring art, jewelry and more courtesy of generous local vendors and NOHFF sponsors.

Proceeds from the event go to benefit the NOHFF Scholarship Program.


Benefits of participating:

  • The NOHHF is a non-profit organization and the vast majority of the funds raised go toward providing scholarships to Hispanic students of our community who have demonstrated, through their academic record, the desire and willingness to excel; other efforts go towards cultivating and promoting the Hispanic heritage of the New Orleans region. Since the work and expense of the NOHHF are assumed by its volunteers, virtually every penny that is contributed goes to scholarships for these children and the Foundations mission.

  • Your name will be acknowledged in the program and appropriately displayed during the event.

Your donations to the NOHHF are tax deductible. Our tax ID number is 58-1881913.
