Fighting Poverty with Passion
The month of March is a busy time for the Broadmoor Improvement Association. Our annual fundraising event, “Metamorphosis,” is coming up in April and planning is in full swing. The entire staff is diverting time to recruit sponsors and food and gift donations. “Metamorphosis” is a silent auction with a Patron Party preceding the event. We hope to have a guest chef present a cooking demonstration for patrons with specialty cocktails and hors d’oeurvres. I have been focusing on communications and marketing surrounding the event. Primarily this will involve a targeted social media campaign. In addition to our fundraiser, we have begun to plan for Give NOLA day coming up this May. This year we plan to partner with some of our tenant organizations, Young Audiences and Community Works, to put together an open house on the day of giving. Not only will this help us increase donations but awareness of our work as well. This is sure to be a busy Spring for the BIA!
