This year’s Oracle Gala honors the founders of Southern Decadence, who have generously donated their memorabilia to the Louisiana Research Collection at Tulane University. Several of the founders will be in attendance at the Gala. A special, one-time only, exhibit of these items, and other items chronicling New Orleans LGBT+ history, will be featured at the Gala.
In addition, the Oracle Gala will also feature the WORLD PREMIERE of rare film footage of the fist several Southern Decadence parties / parades. Former Southern Decadence Grand Marshals will also be recognized.
And the first book ever published on Southern Decadence—Southern Decadence in New Orleans, from the LSU Press by Howard P. Smith and Frank Perez, will also be available at the Gala. This is may be the only opportunity the have the authors and several former Grand Marshals sign the book.
The 2018 Oracle Gala promises to be a truly historic, and decadent, event.
Cocktails, passed hors d’ oeuvres, and silent auction as well. Sponsorship tables are available.
Sponsorship tables are $500 and include 10 event tickets, listing in the event program and on large screens, 20 drink tickets, table seating, and a small gift for 10 guests. To become a sponsor, email us at [email protected]
