4th annual Jazz Brunch on April 2 benefits Children’s Museum
HAMMOND---Mark your calendars for the 4th Annual Jazz Brunch, presented by Cypress Pointe Hospital, on Sunday, April 2, at The Event Center LaMaison Celebrazione!

This exciting event will benefit the Louisiana Children’s Discovery Center (LCDC) and will feature live music, a delicious brunch menu & libations, local celebrity waiters, and a silent auction. There is sure to be something for everyone! Kids can also join in the fun at the Children’s Brunch, located at the same venue! Activities for the Children’s Brunch are being planned and coordinated by students in the International Baccalaureate program at Hammond High Magnet School.

The goal of the Jazz Brunch is to raise funds to help the LCDC continue to fulfill the mission to provide an exceptional environment where play and learning inspire children to embrace their world. Funds raised through the 2016 event helped bring in the new Air Rocket and Energy Lab! These new exhibits give the LCDC an enhanced focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities and are a hit with children and adults alike!

The LCDC is a nonprofit children’s museum located in the heart of downtown Hammond. Since opening in 2010, the LCDC has welcomed over 245,000 visitors from 40 states and hosted field trips from schools in 18 parishes in Louisiana and parts of southern Mississippi. The LCDC offers over 30 different engaging and interactive exhibits and programs, making it an excellent educational resource for families and schools throughout the region. With each exhibit, the LCDC offers a variety of meaningful instructional activities that can be extremely useful for classroom teachers and their students, as well as parents and grandparents who bring their children and grandchildren to let them explore and discover a new ways to play.

The LCDC grows from year to year, thanks to the support of generous community sponsors and those who participate in special events, such as the Jazz Brunch. This support helps maintain and develop an environment that fuels the power of play and creativity for thousands of visitors each month!

Event sponsorships are available and start at $500. Table sponsorships are $1,000 and include 10 event tickets. Individual tickets are available for $60/person and Children’s Brunch tickets are $10/child.
