The envelope is set to be unveiled Thursday at a public ceremony at Cafe Istanbul inside the New Orleans Healing Center (2372 St. Claude Ave.), which begins at 11 a.m.

Andrews will be on hand to sign the envelope both at the unveiling ceremony and at JazzFest's own post office on Sunday, April 28 at 2 p.m. The envelope costs $15.
