We are “jazzing” things up this year and bringing the Big Easy to Uptown, at The Madison, with hints of New Orleans including music and jazz performances from our own talented Madison students which will leave all our guests wanting more. Fine catering of Fresh From the Kitchen, owned and operated by Madison parent, Noelle Salinas, will delight your taste buds as well as whiskey tasting from SanTan Brewery. Guests can participate in a silent auction, raffle and close out the evening dancing to live music from the sophisticated sounds of local band NOLAz.

This is an opportunity for you to be a part of this magical event and leave your heart print on our district students and center for the arts. Speaking of heart print, we will be honoring the first HeART of MADISON award recipient during the event, whose passion, dedication and commitment to enhancing the arts in our Madison schools has left their heart print on our district students. It is going to be a showstopper event.

All proceeds from “Imagination 2020…NOLA” support the Madison Education Foundation’s mission to enrich the quality of music and arts education of every child who attends Madison Elementary School District. On behalf of the over 6,000 students and district staff in the Madison Elementary School District, I want to thank you in advance for joining us in our effort to enhance the quality of education available to our kids. We couldn’t do it without dedicated community partners like yourself.
