The event takes place on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at The Maison Dupuy Hotel, 1001 Toulouse St., from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., and will feature New Orleans famed clarinetist Tim Laughlin.
Sippin’ attendees can purchase raffle tickets to win baskets of prizes including overnight stays, dinners, bar tabs and other items provided by The Maison Dupuy. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales will be donated to Make Music NOLA that began in September 2011 under the name “Youth Orchestra of the Lower Ninth Ward” with only five students. Since then, the program has expanded to nine locations, including four in-school programs and five after school programs.
