Please join us for Lâche Pas: a celebration of music and cuisine benefiting the efforts of CODOFIL
Sunday, August 26, 2012
5:00pm – 10pm
This first time event will raise funds for the efforts of CODOFIL (The Council for the Development of French in Louisiana), the state agency charged with French language educational, cultural and economic development initiatives in Louisiana. CODOFIL is legislatively mandated to drive francophone tourism through culture, education and international relations. With recent statewide reduction of funding, the need to financially support the efforts of CODOFIL is more crucial than ever.
