VIEUX CARRE COMMISSION FOUNDATION

75th Anniversary Gala

Dear Friend of the Vieux Carré Commission,

In 1936, the Vieux Carré Commission (VCC) was established in the Louisiana Constitution. Due to the great work of the VCC over the past 75 years, we have all been blessed to enjoy our treasured Vieux Carré neighborhood, preserved and protected. Today the Vieux Carré—widely acclaimed as one of America’s most important and historic neighborhoods—continues to be enjoyed by thousands of residents who live and work here permanently, as well as millions of annual visitors who add so much to our economy. The Vieux Carré truly represents the heart and soul of New Orleans; indeed, it is hard to imagine this city without its beloved “French Quarter”.

This fall, on November 2, 2011, the Vieux Carré Commission Foundation, the 501(c)(3) organization that supports projects to assist the Vieux Carre Commission in accomplishing its mission, will celebrate and commemorate this historic 75th anniversary milestone. First, in partnership with the Louisiana State Museum, there will be a public commemoration ceremony held in the afternoon at the Cabildo to give everyone an opportunity to honor the VCC’s important work and purpose. This will be followed by an evening patron party and gala fundraiser at Antoine’s Restaurant, featuring food and beverages from a collection of the Vieux Carré’s most renowned restaurants. There will be an exciting line-up of music and entertainment, an auction of fantastic items, and other activities that together will result in a unique and memorable evening in the Vieux Carré.

IBERIABANK, Louisiana’s oldest and largest bank, has graciously offered to be the Presenting Sponsor of these 75th anniversary celebration events. We are very fortunate and appreciative for the great support of IBERIABANK as our major underwriter.

We would like to invite you to become a Patron of this very special gala event. This is a great opportunity to show your support of the invaluable work of the VCC over these past 75 years and to enjoy a wonderful party and celebration, as well.

Below you will find a reply form with the various levels of support. To insure listing in the 75th Anniversary Gala invitation, we ask that you please complete your purchase below by August 20. If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Robinson at (504) 342-4760 or fvcc.nola@gmail.com.
