The first Elevate event was a tremendous success thanks to excellent support from individuals throughout all sectors of New Orleans. The event was held to raise awareness about the Elevate program, and to shed light on the need for more assistance from the city of New Orleans. During the event Elevate was able to highlight the accomplishments made by the student-athletes, and give thanks to those who volunteered over the past year. This first Elevate event had an amazing outcome. Elevate plans to have many more events where they are able to highlight student-athletes and continue to raise awareness about their programs.
