The NOCCA Institute Invites You HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS at House of Blues
The NOCCA Institute, The New Orleans Advocate, and the family of Daniel Price invite you to Home for the Holidays at House of Blues New Orleans, 225 Decatur Street, on Friday, December 22, 2017.
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 alumnus Daniel Price. In keeping with Daniel's twin passions of art and music, the Fund provides scholarships for outstanding visual arts and music students at NOCCA.
Home for the Holidays kicks off with a patron party from 6:30pm - 8:00pm. Both Gold- and Silver-level patrons will be treated to a concert by the legendary Irma Thomas in the concert hall. As a special perk, our 80 Gold-level patrons will receive reserved seating in the House of Blues loge, which offers an unobstructed view of the stage.
On the main floor of the concert hall, there will be a patron buffet from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. The buffet will feature holiday treats made by NOCCA's Culinary Arts students. There will also be open bars upstairs and down, as well as a fabulous silent auction, featuring artwork by Daniel Price Award recipients.
Patrons will have access to the Parish Room, where there will be an open bar from 8pm until the end of the Home for the Holidays concert. Patrons will also be welcome in the Foundation Room, where Jon Roniger will perform.
Gold- and Silver level patrons will be admitted through the Foundation Room entrance, beginning at 6:30. Patron tickets are $145 for Silver-level and $195 for Gold-level.
