Home for the Holidays featured a night of spectacular art and music benefitting the Daniel Price Memorial Fund for Aspiring Artists, which honors the memory of NOCCA alumnus Daniel Price. In keeping with Daniel’s passions of art and music, the Fund provides scholarships for outstanding visual arts and music students at NOCCA.
The Patron Party featured an open bar and entertainment by Jee Yeoun Ko and guests and Irma Thomas.
True to the venue, the House of Blues hosted an exciting lineup of bands, including John Boutte; Stanton Moore Trio; Rebirth Brass Band; James and Linda Andrews; Kermit Ruffins and Friends; Shamarr Allen & The Underdawgs; Tysson; and Trombone Shorty and Friends.
Auction items included Daniel Price artwork and Daniel Price Memorial Award recipients’ artwork and sports memorabilia, including a guitar and jersey signed by Drew Brees.
Approximately 750 attended the event. Next year’s Patron Party will take place in the Parish Room with admission through the Foundation Room entrance on Decatur St.
