YES Fund

For Youth, Education and Scholarship

Jefferson Parish Public School students striving to break the cycle of poverty for their families have a huge challenge: they MUST have post-secondary education and they cannot afford it. Jefferson Dollars for Scholars provides funding opportunities to bridge the gap between TOPS and total funding. In addition, we provide summer enrichment learning to students in elementary and middle schools to introduce them and their families to chosen learning and scholarships!

Join us for Scholartinis by Victory Bar, Silent & Live Auctions, Music by Soul Express and entrees and Hors D’ouevres provided by many famous New Orleans restaurants.

Tickets purchased prior to the night of the event are $85 per person and $150 per couple. They may be purchased online at, by check mailed to 3100 Ridgelake Dr, Suite 206, Metairie, LA 70002 or by calling (504) 831-1565. Tickets purchased at the door are $100 each. Corporate sponsorships are available. Please call for details. 

The Golden Tassel Gathering will be an evening that celebrates the best in all of us. Come join us for a night of delicious food, dancing and fun!
