On Sunday, November 16, 2014 All Souls Episcopal Church & Community Center will host its second annual Soul-A-Bration fundraiser to benefit the after school tutoring and music enrichment programs at the Community Center. We are inviting the community to the event.
The evening will feature live music, complimentary drinks and food from some of New Orleans’ outstanding restaurants. There will be a silent auction with wonderful prizes to bid on.
The mission of All Souls Community Center is to break the cycles of poverty and violence by helping the children and youth of the Lower Ninth Ward achieve proficiency in reading and math, succeed in school, and become engaged citizens and leaders in their community. All Souls further aims to create the community conditions necessary to raise healthy, successful children through parent education, community-building, and strategic partnerships.
The Afterschool Tutoring Program is in its Sixth year of operation, providing afterschool homework assistance and enrichment four days a week to students aged 4-13. After completing their assigned homework, students participate in activities like music enrichment, cooking classes, tennis lessons, and reading clubs.
In order to keep the program growing we need everyone in the community’s support. This event is open to the public.
