MasquerAID / Re-Bridge’s 2nd Annual Fundraising Gala will be held Saturday, December 1, 2012 at the home of Eric Hess and Judge Frank Thaxton III, ret.
This year will be a masked cocktail affair! Guests will gather to support the rehabilitation of two historic bridges, while enjoying an open bar featuring two exclusive Re-Bridge drinks, gourmet bites from Commander's Palace and SoBou, and dancing to a master DJ set of tunes from the 70s to today.
MasquerAID is designed to raise awareness and funds for rehabilitating the Magnolia and Walter Parker Memorial (aka Dumaine) Bridges that cross Bayou St. John, a community effort led by the Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association in collaboration with the Re‐Bridge organization. The Magnolia Bridge is considered the oldest in New Orleans and was recently named one of Louisiana Landmarks Society's "New Orleans Nine."
MasquerAID is open to the public (cocktail attire). All monies raised for Re-Bridge are under FSJNA's charitable 501c3 status. The tickets are $100 each with all proceeds going to Re-Bridge to raise matching funds for city and state funding. Commander's Palace and SoBou have graciously donated the cuisine.
MasquerAID will also include five incredible raffle items for fans of the arts, fashion, dining, drinking, and sports.
Online ticket sales are closed. Tickets will be available at the door.
