You are invited to join Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans on Friday, November 8, for the 10th Annual celebration of the City Stars Soirée. This fête will be located on the City Park campus of Delgado Community College and will honor the young entrepreneurs who act as role models in both business and community leadership for children in our area.
At the Soirée, we will recognize our 2013 Rising Stars honorees and pay tribute to 10 years of Rising Stars recipients. For just a $50 ticket (or $75 for a couple), you can enjoy delicious cuisine courtesy of New Orleans’ finest restaurants and libations provided by Republic National Distributing and Crescent Crown Distributing. This year’s music and dancing will be provided by Glen David Andrews! You can also take a stroll around JA BizTown’s kid city to have your caricature drawn or have your tarot read.
The Rising Star
The Rising Star award signifies outstanding performance and achievement. Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans presents each Rising Star recipient with a dazzling shooting star sculpted out of crystal. It brilliantly symbolizes the stellar achievements they have already reached in their careers and lights the way for others to follow. Junior Achievement’s Rising Stars create, innovate and shine brightly.
Guests will enjoy a star-studded selection of auction items including a seven-day Carnival Cruise and food from New Orleans top restaurants. Leah Chase of Dooky Chase’s is serving as restaurant chair. Music will be provided by the Glen David Andrews band. Additional entertainment includes a fortune teller, photo booth and caricaturist.
