The Camp Tiger Benefit Auction – the major fund-raiser supporting the free, week-long summer day camp for children with special needs in the metropolitan New Orleans and Baton Rouge communities – is on Friday, March 29, 2018, from 7:00 - 11:00 p.m., at Club XLIV- Champions Square in New Orleans. Camp Tiger is planned, organized, staffed, and funded by the efforts of first-year students at the LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine. The LSU Health New Orleans medical students have set a fund-raising goal of $150,000 to underwrite the cost of the Camp, so it remains free to campers and their families. All proceeds go directly to running Camp Tiger. For a donation of $65 per person, the evening promises to be full of fun and bargains with food donated by local restaurants. Dance to the music of the Rockenbraughs, whose members include Dr. Dan Nuss, Professor and Chairman of ENT-Head and Neck Surgery at LSU Health New Orleans. Spectacular silent and live auctions will feature a host of fun and useful items. It’s a great place to shop for birthday, holiday, anniversary or other gifts as well as splurging for yourself while helping to make a unique and meaningful outreach program possible!
