The “Virtual Tucks Experience” will be streamed LIVE on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at noon via YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch. Former Carnival Royalty Leslie Cooper and WGNO’s Kenny Lopez will be the co-hosts for the show. There will be live music from SOUL Project NOLA, a live painting from internationally-known artist, Frenchy, interviews with former Tucks royalty and the Tucks Charitable Foundation. There will also be special video tributes from parades in the past.

The Tucks Charitable Foundation will also be making donations to Children’s Hospital of New Orleans and Magnolia Community Services to help support their missions.
