COOL, Cocktails, and Community
The COOL Cooperative, a New Orleans based non-profit engaged in “Youth Development through the
Magic of Film” is excited to be holding it’s official launch party at the Eiffel Society on Wednesday,
December 17, 2014 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.
The New Orleans Chamber of Commerce will also be on hand for the official “ribbon cutting” to
welcome The COOL Cooperative.
The COOL Cooperative began its pilot of The COOL Creators After-School program in September 2014. The six-year enrichment program starts with 7th graders, and will be adding a grade each year there after ultimately providing a work-force development program for Louisiana. We are thrilled to be sharing this innovative, engaging, fun-filled and inspiring film-based program with the community.
In true New Orleans fashion, the event will feature incredible live music,food, COOL cocktails (cash bar) pictures with Santa and a raffle! “The Ultimate House Band”, who recently opened for Bruno Mars, will be performing and a former NFL Pro Bowl Saints player will be posing with fans as Santa Claus. A festive backdrop is being created for gueststo come out and discover how film education is providing hope and opportunity for today’s youth, meetthe team and network with like-minded individuals.
The Eiffel Society is graciously supporting COOL through it’s “Pay it Forward Happy Hour” with 20% of Eiffel’s bar sales being contributed to the nonprofit. A delicious variety of food is being donated by local restaurants and food trucks and over 30 local businesses have kindly donated fabulous gifts, tickets, art, professional services and more that can be won through an onsite raffle, with all proceeds supporting the COOL Cooperative and the COOL Creators Program.
