Around Tulane

Tomorrow - March 7, 2009

The Tulane Public Interest Law Foundation holds its annual fundraiser auction tomorrow evening at the law school.  I attended last year, and it was entertaining.  Living with one of the organizers, I was privy to the growing list of fun items up for bid - including a duck hunting trip with a professor, dinner with professors at local restaurants, and several significant gift certificates to local eateries, hotels, and events.  The auction starts at 6:45 p.m., black and white attire encouraged - the event is open to the community, too.

Next Weekend - March 14, 2009

Replant Broadway Day - A great cause.  It's an attempt to bring trees back to Broadway Avenue (finally, years after Katrina) is pushing to begin planting 300 trees along the Uptown thoroughfare.  A friend is heading the campaign to secure the remaining funding by next weekend - in the range of several thousand dollars.  So if you want to donate or help with the planting, here's the relevant information:
