Lagniappe - noun \ˈlan-ˌyap, lan-ˈ\ something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure. "Lagniappe" is a social event,
something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure.
“Lagniappe” is a social event, hosted by #Awayteam & DJ RQ Away, originally intended as “something extra” for supporters of the #Awayteam brand. After the success of DJ RQ Away’s “Lagniappe” mix series the event transformed into an extraordinary night of new memories being made with an eclectic and soulful soundtrack, packed out venues, and sweat soaked shirts & blouses.
On Saturday, January 2nd, we will be taking over Tipitina’s once again and we’ll bring along The Rahim Glaspy Experience, Taylor Made Wings & Crescent Care and of course DJ RQ Away!
Our last Lagniappe event (Oct 2nd, 2016) hosted over 500 attendees on a night filled with not only good vibes and good music, but charity as well as we collected over 600 pounds of food for donation to Second Harvest Food Bank. This time around we’ll be exchanging tickets for items for donation to The New Orleans Mission starting Thursday, December 17th, 2016.
Item donation list:
– Clothing items (cleaned/ gently used)
– Toothbrush/ Toothpaste
– Soap (Bar/ or gel)
– Toilet paper (new/ sealed)
1 FREE ticket per item donated (while supplies last)
