ReNEW Charter Schools 3rd Annual “Future Takes Flight” to Benefit Low-Income Students' College Visits in April
(NEW ORLEANS) – For more than 3,200 ReNEW students across the city, college is on their minds. The students set their sights on earning college diplomas by participating in end-of-year college-focused field studies sponsored by ReNEW. The goal of the field studies is to expand the students’ scope of opportunities post-graduation. On college visits across the country, students partake in admissions sessions, meet with financial aid officers, tour dorm rooms and grasp firsthand that college is more than an idea; rather it is a real, tangible opportunity for the future.
This year, ReNEW is hosting its 3rd annual “Future Takes Flight” fundraiser, chaired by Harold and Carol Asher, to benefit these college visits and field studies.
This event will be held at the Arbor Room in City Park, located at 12 Magnolia Dr., on Nov. 13, from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. Tickets are $65.
This year’s event highlights include handcrafted cocktails and spirits by Grey Goose vodka, Bombay Sapphire, Dewar’s and Bacardi, and beer provided by Abita, live music by Louisiana Spice Jazz Orchestra and raffle items including a Florida beach vacation for up to 6 people, a tandem bike, a River House staycation, a French Quarter staycation, Taste of New Orleans restaurant gift certificates, a fishing charter for up to 4 people and many more.
More than 12-stationed restaurants, including Saucy's BBQ, Acme Oyster House and Atchafalaya Restaurant, providing savory bites and samples of city favorites, will also participate.
Understanding the majority of ReNEW’s students have never traveled outside the city of New Orleans, these field studies grant a tremendous opportunity for students to have an extraordinary learning experience.
ReNEW Schools provide a rigorous, college preparatory education to historically underserved PK – 12 students.
