The Man and Woman of the Year has been a tradition in Tangipahoa Parish since 1976. JA of Tangipahoa has inducted these outstanding individuals into our Hall of Fame. These honorees are those who volunteer their time and energy to better the lives of children in the community and improve the community.
Currently, the Junior Auxiliary of Tangipahoa has embarked on planning an awards ceremony to continue the legacy of this tradition while expanding the scope into the future. The 2024 inaugural Sapphire Soiree will be a fundraiser to support giving back to the community through the Junior Auxiliary, while also further establishing the existing tradition of Man & Woman of the Year. This year, there will be even more awards for the community and local municipality, and these “People of the Year” are open for nominations now! Click the button below to submit.
In addition to a fabulous awards ceremony, there will be drinks, dinner, music, dancing, a silent auction, and even live painting. A highlight of the event will also be a “Wall of Fame”, where previous awards winners will be recognized as well. Upon exit, you will be able to view a video slideshow that will highlight our service work throughout the past year and sponsor advertisements.
Junior Auxiliary of Tangipahoa’s Sapphire Soiree is sure to be an evening to be remembered and a new tradition to be cherished. If you would like to support the Junior Auxiliary of Tangipahoa’s newest event, please click the sapphire below.
