The Association of St. Augustine Alumni – DFW Chapter’s Inaugural Purple Music & Food Festival is another of our premier fundraising events that focuses on raising awareness and support for our alma mater’s 69-year mission of educating and molding deserving young black men in New Orleans to become leaders equipped to have global impact. The festival is designed to provide a small taste of the NOLA Jazz Fest and if you’ve never been, you are in for a real treat!
