THE PEOPLE UNITED FOR ARMSTRONG PARK HOLDS INAUGURAL FUNDRAISER
Party in Support of Jazz in the Park and Host of Community Initiatives

New Orleans, February 21, 2013 - The People United for Armstrong Park (PUfAP) is throwing their first spring soiree: Sowing Seeds in Sacred Ground-an evening celebrating the culture and community of New Orleans.  The fundraiser will feature an open bar, hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction, and performances and appearances by Bill Summers, Donald Harrison, Chris Severin, Khris Royal, Ricky Sebastian, Zulu Connection, The Black Feather Mardi Gras Indians, The Baby Dolls, The New School Brass Band, and more.

The event is hosted by The People United for Armstrong Park, and generously sponsored by hotelier and businessman Michael Valentino, Basin Street Station, and City Sightseeing New Orleans.

Sowing Seeds in Sacred Ground takes place on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, from 6-9 PM.  It will be held on the fourth floor of Basin Street Station, located at 501 Basin Street.  Attendees are asked to support PUfAP's cultural and community initiatives with a minimum patronage of fifty dollars, and may RSVP to the included contact information.  Tickets also are available via PayPal at www.armstrongpark.org

Jazz in the Park provides free, family-friendly music and entertainment in Armstrong Park, with emphasis on the cultural lineage of New Orleans.  Spring 2013 represents the third season of the concert series, and in addition to its stellar, forthcoming lineup, there is a children's area that offers fun and enriching activities, and a food and craft marketplace.  The marketplace features local vendors, and concertgoers can grab a delicious meal while enjoying a night out, or make groceries while listening to the music.

Founded to promote citizen awareness of and activities in Armstrong Park, The People United for Armstrong Park continues to fulfill that mission by forging connections via culture with the neighborhoods around the park and throughout New Orleans.  In cooperation with HANO, PUfAP hires and trains high-risk and formerly incarcerated individuals so they may re-enter the workforce and improve their lives.  PUfAP is working diligently to make Rampart Street and Treme destinations of choice for residents of New Orleans and visitors alike.
