For $75, today's side deal gets you one ticket to Local Legends for Local Scholars, a concert to benefit the Urban League College Track program in New Orleans (a $150 value). The event takes place at Tiptina's in the French Quarter on Thursday, December 9, kicking off with a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres reception at 8 p.m. before the music starts at 8:30 p.m.
College Track is an after-school program that provides college prep to motivated but under-resourced high school students. Tutoring, workshops, community service opportunities, and internships lead 97% of College Track participants across the nation to acceptance into four-year degree programs. Support the organization and have fun simultaneously by attending the benefit concert, which brings together Big Easy–based acts such as the Rebirth Brass Band, Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs, Irvin Mayfield, and Ivan Neville. The event also entails a student talent showcase, and all attendees receive a commemorative T-shirt.
