NEW ORLEANS (press release) – After two years of being unable to host the Southern University at New Orleans Scholarship fundraiser, the SUNO Foundation and Alums are putting on an extravagant scholarship gala. On Friday, October 28, at 7 p.m., the two organizations will join forces to present the Emmett Bashful A Southern Knight in New Orleans Scholarship Gala and Silent Auction.

The event will take place under the stars on the campus of SUNO. Guests will gather at the Arts and Humanities Building to celebrate the return of the fundraiser with good food, great entertainment, and great fellowship with friends and alums members.
