Jump into fun at this year’s 35th annual “Julia Jump” fundraiser. The Preservation Resource Center’s premier fundraiser, one of the oldest fundraisers in the city of New Orleans, will take place on Friday, March 23, at a more-than-appropriate historical venue, the French Market (entrance on Barracks Street) at 1200 North Peters St. in the French Quarter. All of the proceeds of this fundraising event will go to the PRC’s mission to preserve, restore and revitalize New Orleans through its historic architecture and neighborhoods.

With an attire of “French Quarter Festive” (think dressy casual, but better), the patron party will jump start the event at 6:30 p.m. There will be live music and a sneak preview of all silent auction items available for bidding later in the evening. The gala will then run from 8 to 11 p.m. Join PRC president Anne Redd and event co-chairs Mandi Frischhertz and Carol Starr for musical entertainment by Deacon John, cuisine supplied by numerous local restaurants at a variety of food stations, a raffle featuring Wellington & Company Earrings and a silent auction including Sugar Bowl tickets, a stay at the Pontalba, a ride in the Krewe of Tucks parade, a tour of the Rex den, artwork, photography, spa services, diamond earrings and a necklace from Friend & Company and much more.

Celebrating 35 years, the auction boards will be named after the corridors and streets that the PRC has protected and restored, culminating at the board where it all began: Julia Street.

An array of Julia Jump attendance packages is available at prcno.org. For more information please contact Katye Rhett by calling 636-3059 or emailing Krhett@prcno.org.
