The Junior League of New Orleans sincerely appreciates your generous support of the 7th Annual Touch a Truck. The event took place on on November 17, 2018 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Pontchartrain Center and provided families the opportunity to interact with the wide variety of businesses and vehicles that protect, serve, and build South Louisiana. Touch a Truck helps children connect these vehicles to possible careers in construction, manufacturing, emergency response, and many others.
Nearly 3100 attendees of all ages thoroughly enjoyed the wide array of vehicles and activities, and your participation helped continue our efforts to make this a marquee event for years to come. JLNO also held its second Field Trip Friday that enabled 625 students from our partner schools to enjoy the event for free.
Through ticket sales, business sponsorships, and donations, the event raised over $50,000 for JLNO’s community projects that advance the wellbeing of women in Metropolitan New Orleans.
