The Annual Weiss Awards were established in 1954 in the memory of the Weiss Brothers - Seymour, Bernard, Milton & Julius, and each year NOCCJ hosts this event to recognize outstanding community leaders who exemplify humanity’s goal. This year, the 60th Annual event will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Orleans
When we consider last year’s event, we are deeply appreciative of all who have supported our community with their name, talents, and time to help NOCCJ continue its mission of opening minds & bringing people together. This year, we will be honoring five outstanding men and women whose civic and humanitarian contributions are examples to be followed: Mary Jane W. and John D'Arcy Becker; Karen Deblieux; Ellis Marsalis; and William Mimeles.
Lieutenant Governor William H. "Billy" Nungesser and Karl Hoefer are serving as Co-Chairs of the 60th Annual Weiss Awards.
This year’s Awards Event will be special like none before, so join us as celebrate our rich heritage of celebrating community and justice!
