NAME CHANGE Golden Opportunity Main Campus will now be known as “Golden Opportunity – OMC (Ochsner Main Campus) Jeff Hwy”. Please make all checks payable to “GO – OMC Jeff Hwy” and add the name of the event in the memo section of the check. SAENGER THEATRE TICKETS Our office staff will be contacting you about payment for Jersey Boys tickets. The response was overwhelming; an additional day was added to the schedule. The date of 12/14/16, Wednesday (ticket cost $104.50 – includes the Ochsner bus fee but not the dinner before the play), sold out very quickly. An additional date of 12/16/16 (Friday) was purchased (ticket cost $109.75 – includes the Ochsner bus fee but not the dinner before the play) was purchased. I keep a seating chart of those wanting to be seated together. This also allows me to keep members attending on the same day. However, if you are new to attending the plays, you will not be on my seating chart, and you will have to request your seating preference. I will make every effort to accommodate your request.
