GiveNOLA Day, hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is the community’s third annual, 24-hour online-charitable giving event, created to inspire people to give more to nonprofit organizations that are making our region stronger and creating a vibrant community for all.
New Orleans Volunteer Orchestra (NOVO) is proud to be a participating nonprofit this year as we host a Nonprofit Happy Hour this Tuesday in conjunction with GiveNOLA Day. The free fundraising event will include musical entertainment by members of NOVO, refreshments for all ages, and representatives from several other nonprofits also discussing their organizations.
“This is our first year participating in GiveNOLA Day. We see this as a way to raise
awareness for our organization and other amazing organizations in the metro area,” said Chris Bergeron, Conductor New Orleans Volunteer Orchestra.
The Nonprofit Happy Hour will take place this Tuesday, May 3rd, from 5 to 8 p.m. at St. Charles Avenue Baptist Church (7100 St. Charles Ave.). NOVO and several other nonprofits will have representatives available to discuss their organizations and mission. Musical entertainment will be provided by members of NOVO. Other entertainment will include Crescent City Lights Youth Theater and a mini fashion show by High Voltage. This is a family-friendly event; refreshments and non-alcoholic beverages provided. Donation stations will be available. This event is free and open to the public.
