We have set up a "GoFundMe" page to help us with critical infrastructure repairs and educational programs.
Thanks so much!
The Italian American Bocce Club of Greater New Orleans has promoted both the wonderful game of bocce and the celebration of Italian American culture since 1971. We are currently located at 2340 Severn Avenue in Metairie, where we operate an indoor facility with three full-sized bocce courts, poker room, kitchen, bar area, and banquet space for 75+ people.
Like many older cultural and community clubs,weare struggling to stay alive in the era of social media, virtual friends, and a reduced connection to culture, community, and history. Of course, Hurricane Katrina also hurt - decimating our membership rolls and scattering the Italian families that helped build the Club. However, we are fighting hard to survive...and having some success at it too...but we need some help from the community to make sure the Italian American Bocce Club is not added to the dreaded post-Katrina "Ain't Dere No More" list.
At present time, we draw just enough money to pay our utility bills, insurance, and property taxes. To continue on in the future, we must make repairs to the facility to keep attracting people to the Club so that we can continue to keep this unique cultural icon alive...because once the Italian American Bocce Club is gone, the New Orleans area will never see anything like this again!
Please consider supporting this important part of the cultural fabric of the greater New Orleans area!
