Bruno's Tavern Fundraiser for Sophie the VW!

  • Bruno's Tavern 7538 Maple Street New Orleans, LA (map)

The beloved TUMB parade support vehicle, a 1961 Volkswagen pickup truck named “Sophie,” was purchased and restored by Tulane alumni Patrick and Marian Maguire in 2003 before providing it to the new Tulane University Marching Band for Mardi Gras and football games.

This weekend, Bruno’s Tavern is holding a fundraiser and watch party when the Green Wave takes on the USF Bulls! A portion of proceeds will benefit Sophie’s fundraiser.

Come out for some excellent food and a great football matchup with a special performance by the Green Wave Brass Band at halftime!

Contributions are also being accepted through a GoFundMe page. Please consider making a donation or coming out to Bruno’s this weekend!

Roll Wave!
