Understanding that the majority of ReNEW’s 3,200 students have never traveled outside the city of New Orleans, our college field studies grant a tremendous opportunity for students to have a truly extraordinary learning experience. We take our students to colleges and universities across the country to visit classes, dorms and campuses. This year, ReNEW is hosting its 3rd annual Future Takes Flight fundraiser to benefit these college visits and field studies. This event will be held at 12 Magnolia Drive at the Arbor Room in City Park on November 13, 2014 from 7:00-10:00pm. Tickets are $65.
In a City that celebrates everything, we say lets celebrate the end of hurricane season. And by celebrating, we contribute to the future preparedness of our city by raising awareness for evacuteer.org and the countless volunteers and community organizations who support our mission.
This year, 2014, we have even more to celebrate. The quietest hurricane season since 1982. The installation of EvacuSpots around New Orleans that now creatively mark evacuation pick-up points. Media coverage from around the country and the globe. The largest number of trained and specialized Evacuteers. And #ByeBye6 in a new, bigger venue, with bigger entertainment: Big Sam's Funky Nation, Wild Magnolias Mardi Gras Indians, Flow Tribe, To Be Continued Brass Band, Walker Landry Marching Band with performances by the Cherry Bombs and the Organ Ginders!
