Thank you to all Lycée families, friends and community members for attending and supporting L'Extravagance on Sunday. It was truly a memorable and entertaining night! We will have a full report on its success soon!
 
L'Extravagance was a success thanks to its powerhouse committee members: Jennifer Teague (co-chair), Tara Richard (co-chair), Shawn McKee, Claudia Elliot and Mary Dwyer, along with all entertainment, volunteers and donors. Special thanks are owed to all sponsors and supporters! We are grateful for the delicious treats offered by our food sponsors and the generosity offered by our Gold, Silver, Friend, Spirits, Entertainment and Photo Booth sponsors and special thanks to Josh Reyher for being our Auctioneer.
 
Silent Auction winners may pick up items at the St Paul campus (600 Eleonore St) Monday through Friday between 8:15-4PM. If you need other arrangements please contact Sophie Uijttenboogaard, Director of Development, at spenau@lfno.org

For the few items that did not sell, we will have a Last Chance Auction starting TODAY, Thursday at 3PM and closing Sunday at 3PM. For bidding on the last chance auction please visit: www.501auctions.com/LFNO












We still have many spots available from  2:00 pm - 7:30pm  to sign up to sell t-shirts at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Volunteering for a shift will help us raise money for the LFNO Music Program.  By working a shift you will receive a free ticket to the fest (worth $80) and are able to enjoy the festival before your shift from the 2pm-7:30pm time slot.

Please note, you do not need to be a parent of Lycee to participate, however, you must pick up your credentials, take a short test and stay at the booth for your entire shift. Please sign up by  Saturday, March 10th.
