Want a chance to re-live (or reinvent!) your prom night while honoring breast cancer survivors?

Join us for the Krewe de Pink Prom, a fun-filled evening organized by Krewe de Pink, a local, all-volunteer nonprofit that raises funds to support breast cancer research at Tulane Cancer Center.

This year's event takes place on Saturday, September 30, 2023, 7 - 11 PM, at Generations Hall, 310 Andrew Higgins Blvd.

Come dressed in pink prom style, take a prom photo and then dance the night away to your favorite disco, funk, jazz, Motown, R&B and salsa tunes, courtesy of New Orleans’ own Crescent City Soul. You might event get crowned Prom King or Queen!

Other entertainment includes a special performance by the Pussyfooters, and breast cancer survivors in attendance will be honored and celebrated with a dedicated "promenade."

This 21 & older event includes a cash bar, featuring the winning entries from Krewe de Pink’s 2023 Pink Cocktail Contest. Attendees may also bring along snacks for their table. 

The auction features a variety of items, including New Orleans Staycation packages, jewelry, artwork and one-of-a-kind, hand-decorated costume bras. There's also a raffle, featuring a wine barrel, a beer bucket, and a Lotto ticket bundle!  You can view and bid on select auction items NOW by clicking here, even if you're not able to attend the event.
