Azúcar Ball Fundraiser 2013
The New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation (NOHHF) held its 2013 Azúcar Ball, "Noche de Tango", on November 16, 2013, at the fabulous New Orleans Sugar Mill, offering live tango performances and cuisine and cocktails inspired by Buenos Aires, Argentina. The evening also featured music by Latin Four and by Julio y César, an outdoor cigar lounge, scotch and whiskey bar, and fine cuisine from the city's top rated restaurants. The 2013 Gálvez Cup was awarded to well-know physician and renowned researcher Nicolás Bazán. Proceeds from the event went to benefit the NOHHF Scholarships Program.

Benefits of participating in future Azúcar Ball events:
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.
