SUPERBASH

The Celebration of Excellence Host Committee invites everyone to the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) February 1, 2013 for its annual Celebration of Excellence Gala. The gala event will raise funds to support the efforts of local non-profits while celebrating the individuals, non-profits, organizations and businesses that strive to impact and inspire their surrounding communities. Hope you have your red carpet attire ready!

With a strong belief in giving back to the community, the Louisiana Black Chamber of Commerce and 100 Black Men of Huntsville will both serve as hosts for the evening’s events. The two organizations have joined forces to be catalysts and vehicles for the Public-Private Partnership during the 2013 Super Bowl. The event is meant to showcase the best NOLA has to offer on-and-off the field, and in-and-out of the boardroom.

The Celebration of Excellence Host Committee has selected PayAnywhere’s mobile credit card processing services for the upcoming event’s transaction needs. Event officials will use PayAnywhere’s free app and card reader to accept credit card payments for purchases or donations guests may make throughout the evening. With PayAnywhere, gala attendees only need to swipe their card, verify the amount and sign their signature; allowing them to quickly return to the festivities.

PayAnywhere enables fundraising officials to track transactions in real-time so they have an immediate tally of earnings throughout the event. For each transaction, PayAnywhere gives gala officials the ability to create a customized receipt that includes the event logo and website, tax ID number and an itemized list of donations made. At the end of the transaction the receipt can be emailed to the guest, giving them instant confirmation of their donation and a record of the transaction should they need it later for tax or record keeping purposes.

So, put on your most elegant attire and come celebrate the excellence in the NOLA community!
