What was once the "Propeller Gala," is now "Propeller Pop!"
On Thursday, May 22 we take an evening to celebrate the graduation of Propeller's third class of Accelerator Fellows, who have applied their genius, passion and creativity to some of New Orleans' biggest challenges.
Pop on over to Propeller to honor the dedication and success of the 2013-2014 Accelerator class!
The evening also features local food from pop-up chefs, drinks and cocktails from pop-up bars, pop-themed activities, pop-ular music and a silent auction. Proceeds help support the 2014-2015 Accelerator and Alumni programming.
Purchase your Propeller Pop tickets before May 16, 2014 and you may be selected for a free upgrade to join the Top Pop hour catered by Ralph Brennan!
