SUNO Foundation Annual BASH Raises Money for Scholarships

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Oct. 2, 2017 – The Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) Foundation invites the community to support its annual BASH, which raises money for student scholarships. The BASH will be Friday, Oct.27, 2017 from 7-10 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.

This year, the BASH will honor SUNO alumni who currently are elected officials: La. State Sen. Wesley Bishop, La. Public Service Commissioner Lambert Boissiere III, La. State Rep. Joseph Bouie Jr., Orleans Parish School Board Member Leslie Ellison, St. Bernard Parish School Board Member Henderson Lewis Jr., Orleans Parish Clerk of Criminal District Court Arthur Morrell, Algiers Second City Court Constable Edwin Shorty Jr., St. Tammany Parish Council Member T.J. Smith Jr., Orleans Parish Juvenile Court Judge Tammy Stewart, Terrebonne Parish Council Member Arlanda Williams, and La. 4th Circuit Court of Appeal Judge Regina Bartholomew Woods.

The BASH began in 2004. It is named for the late Emmett W. Bashful, SUNO’s chancellor emeritus and first chancellor, as well as the event’s first honoree. The 2017 BASH co-chairs are SUNO alumni Kemic A. Smothers and Cheryl Legohn Tubbs. New Orleans band Royal Essence will provide entertainment.

“So many of our alumni have served this state in elected positions that we thought this would be a good time to honor those who are currently in office,” said Gloria B. Moultrie, chief administrative officer of Community Outreach, Alumni Affairs and Public Relations. “We encourage the community to come out to honor these men and women, and, most importantly, to help future SUNO students.”

Tickets can be purchased at eventbrite.com. Sponsorship opportunities are available at the SUNO Office of Community Outreach in the Emmett W. Bashful Administration Building, Room 312, 6400 Press Drive, New Orleans, LA 70126. For information, call 504-286-5341.
