Your mission, should you choose to accept it,

Description

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to crack clues, solve challenges, and win prizes at the Friends of the New Orleans Public Library's James Bond-themed scavenger hunt throughout the Main Library on Saturday November 9 from 6:30pm - 10:30pm. Proceeds from this ticketed fundraising event will support the Library's 2020 Summer Fun program.

The first-place winner will receive two (2) domestic round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines. Guests will celebrate their successes after the hunt with live music by SOUL Brass Band and the Worry Free Jazz Duo, presented by Young Audiences; an open bar; and a silent auction. Some of our city’s best eateries, including Gattuso's, Liberty Cheesecake, Zea, Tartine, Laurel Street Bakery, and Munch Factory, will be serving delicious food throughout the night. Proper spy attire encouraged.

Auction items include artwork by Dr. Bob, jewelry from Mignon Faget, 3 custom-built Little Free Libraries, LSU home game football tickets, a chartered fishing trip for 4, resort packages, luxury services, and more.

All proceeds from this ticketed fundraising event will directly support the New Orleans Public Library’s 2020 Summer Fun program.

In 2019, more than 15,000 children, teens, and adults enjoyed the benefits the program provided across 15 Library locations. Through the funds raised from this event, the Friends will continue to sponsor free events, workshops, and incentives that champion literacy, strengthen communities, and enrich minds.
