2015 Annual Gala for Selected Trust

The 2015 Selected Trust Annual Gala will feel brand new, and much more accessible, when we celebrate together in the Big Easy on September 17 at Pat O's on the River in New Orleans.

For the first time ever, the Gala will be held on a Thursday night during Selected Independent Funeral Homes Annual Meeting. The price to attend is now $195 per person, the lowest ticket price ever! While the Gala represents our largest fund raising event of the year, it also represents a time to celebrate Lifelong Learning by our membership.

This year's event will feature "The Hurricane," a world famous cocktail first-created at Pat O'Brien's. Gala attendees will be able to enjoy their Hurricane at a private party at Pat O's, one of the loveliest and most unique venues in town. Overlooking the Mississippi River, Pat O's will give attendees a chance to view the history of the town rolling by while sipping on an adult beverage, eating world-famous cuisine and enjoying the camaraderie of friends and peers, all in support of Lifelong Learning.

Stay tuned for much more about the Gala in the coming months, but mark your calendars now for Thursday, September 17, Pat O's on the River, the Selected Trust Annual Gala. We'll see you there!
