Plenty of fundraising events tap local and celebrity chefs for their causes, and this month students at the International High School of New Orleans (www.ihsnola.org) are the lucky beneficiaries. On April 21, iStudio & A Taste of NOLA teams art students from the Warehouse District school with five notable local chefs for a night of art and food at Tulane's Newcomb Art Museum (Woldenberg Art Center, Newcomb Circle; www.newcombartmuseum.tulane.edu).
The event will showcase the students' art works as well as dishes from chefs Will Avelar of Meril, David Slater of Emeril's Restaurant Group, Adolfo Garcia of Top Hat and La Boca, Joaquin Rodas of Bacchanal Wine and Edgar Caro of Brasa Churrasaqueria and Baru Tapas and Bistro.
Proceeds from the event will be used to further students' work at International High School of New Orleans. Tickets are $75 per person or $125 per couple and include entry to the museum, food, drinks and a silent auction. Tickets can be purchased at www.eventbrite.com.
