The Nunez Community College Foundation Board invites you to celebrate and support the college by taking part in its annual Pelicans and Pearls Gala fundraiser on Saturday, March 26, from 5-8 p.m. at Docville Farm.

The Gala will include dishes prepared by Nunez’s Culinary Arts students, tastings from area restaurants, soft drinks, music, beer, wine, and a special Pelican Punch.  There will also be raffles, a silent auction, and a bevy of “Pearl-itzer Prizes” as part of this fun fundraiser.

Tickets are $55 each and attire for the event is business or cocktail attire.

Katherine Lemoine, Nunez Associate Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement, said this annual event raises scholarship funds which provide a chance to attend college to many students who otherwise could not.

"This event is truly a party with a purpose since it supports our scholarship program," Lemoine said.  "As the only single-campus college in the state, we want to showcase Nunez and celebrate all that is good here in our hometown."

She said the gala’s theme underscores the importance of Nunez to the community.

“We feel that Nunez is a gem in St. Bernard, and we want to celebrate it as a pearl of our parish.”
