Propeller 2013 Gala

Propeller’s largest annual event and fundraiser is fast approaching—the 2013 Propeller Gala takes place May 23rd. We hope you can join us to celebrate the graduation and successes of our 2012-2013 Accelerator Fellows.

11 April 2013

2013 Propeller Gala
Thursday, May 23, 7:00pm-10:30PM
Propeller Incubator, 4035 Washington Ave.

Since June, 12 Propeller-supported ventures have been working hard to improve the health and vitality of New Orleans through mobile dental clinics, expungement services, community vegetable and flower farms, wetlands kayak tours, and more.  Join us in raising a glass to these innovative problem-solvers who have created jobs, reached financial sustainability, and made measurable impact within our city -- all within Propeller's 10-month Accelerator Program.

The 2013 Propeller Gala celebrates the graduation of our 2012-2013 Propeller Accelerator Fellows and the Grand Opening of the Propeller Incubator.  Funds raised at the May 23rd Gala will go towards next year’s Accelerator program, the expansion of the Fellows Alumni program, and the execution of our annual social innovation pitch competition (PitchNOLA) which sources innovative solutions from the community for food access and vacant land. 

Last year’s Gala event featured Mayor Mitch Landrieu as our keynote speaker, 300+ attendees, elected officials, funders, social innovators, business leaders, and community members. 

The event will include highlights from the Propeller Accelerator Fellows, small plates, beer & wine, entertainment and silent auction.
