NYX Presents ‘Corsets And Cowboys’ To Benefit The American Heart Association



The Nola Nyxettes

NEW ORLEANS – The Mystic Krewe of Nyx is going “western” to raise money for The American Heart Association at its annual “Corsets and Cowboys” party on Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Sheraton Hotel, 500 Canal St., from 7:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.

         Courageous guests can take a ride on a mechanical bull or, for a less challenging experience, they can bid on both silent and live auction items while enjoying some good food and having their picture taken in a western style photo booth.

         The Nola Nyxettes will also be making an appearance to mix and mingle with the crowd, as well as to teach some boot scoot and boogie country line dances. 

         Corsets and cowboy attire are strongly encouraged, but not required. 

         Erika McConduit, president and CEO of the Urban League of Louisiana, will serve as this year’s emcee. McConduit oversees the Urban League’s operations, strategic planning, partnership development and contract management and steers the Urban League’s mission of empowering communities and changing lives.

         This year’s silent and live auctions include:

 

• A six-day, five-night Jamaica trip – stay at the Luna Sea Inn in West Moreland, Jamaica.

• A Terrence Osborne original – win a Terrence Osborne original art piece signed by the artist himself.

• Best seats in the house – table for 10 at the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball in the VIP section. Winner must be a Krewe of Nyx member.

 

         Attendees must be 21 and over. ID is required for entry. Beer, wine, soft drinks and food are included. Other liquors are available for purchase at the event. Auction items can be viewed online here.

         Single tickets are $75 or $135.00 per couple, and are available here

         Nyx, the goddess of night, was considered one of the most powerful goddesses in Greek mythology. This year, the Mystic Krewe of Nyx will parade on Wednesday, Feb. 7. The Mystic Krewe of Nyx was formed in 2011 and now holds the honor of being the largest all-female parading carnival krewe in the history of New Orleans Mardi Gras. The Krewe of Nyx was established to unite women of diverse backgrounds for fun, friendship, and the merriment of the Mardi Gras season, reps said.
