NEW ORLEANS (press release) – The NOCCA Foundation, the The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, and the family of Daniel Price invite you to Home for the Holidays on Wednesday, December 21. This year’s event will once again be in-person at its traditional home, House of Blues New Orleans, located at 225 Decatur St.
Home for the Holidays is a night of spectacular art and music benefiting the Daniel Price Memorial Fund for Aspiring Artists, which honors the memory of NOCCA alum Daniel Price (Visual Arts, 1993). The fund was established following Daniel’s death at the age of 28 while protecting his wife from an assailant. Daniel’s fund is part of the NOCCA Foundation’s Student Success Program, which provides NOCCA’s young artists with year-round support for training, supplies, and college scholarships.
Home for the Holidays kicks off with a patron party from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Gold- and Silver-level patrons will be treated to back-to-back performances by two New Orleans legends: Irma Thomas and John Boutte! Both Gold and Silver patrons will enjoy a buffet dinner and open bar during the patron party, plus a fabulous silent auction featuring artwork by NOCCA alumni who’ve received the Daniel Price Award. Patrons will also have all-night access to the Parish Room, where there will be an open bar from 8pm until the end of the Home for the Holidays concert. Our 80 Gold-level patrons will receive reserved seating for the patron party and concert.
