Once again, funds raised at this year’s event will be used to grant the wish of a terminally ill child through the outreach program at A Child’s Wish of Louisiana.
A Child’s Wish would like to say thank you to the students at St. Rita Catholic School in Harahan for raising funds to help make wishes come true! The students raised money on their own to donate to help wishes come true for children with critical illnesses.

A Child’s Wish of Louisiana would like to sincerely thank Marie Claire Bennett and the entire Kendra Scott staff for an amazing event last night!
Our Kendra Gives Back party was a memorable night of shopping fabulous jewelry, while tasting delicious cupcakes & sweets and sipping champagne.
There were about 30+ women, children and brave men who came out to shop and we raised over $760 for A Child’s Wish of Louisiana in 2 hours!
Be sure to check out their website for all of their beautiful jewelry! We are looking forward to partnering with them for many years in the future!

For the family of a child with a life-threatening illness, courageously meeting the responsibilities of each day is challenging, tiring, and emotionally draining. These delicate and oftentimes desperate families dream of a genie granting their Child’s biggest dream – an emotional escape from the reality of their everyday fight.
All proceeds from this event will support wishes granted by A Child’s Wish. We hope to see you there!

The Barman’s Fund NOLA is ushering in the New Year with an epic fourth anniversary celebration on January 19th. We’ve been delighted to partner with this local community of philanthropists every January for these past four years, and are even more thrilled to have been generously appointed as the beneficiary of their anniversary party!
Brian Floyd created the original Barman’s Fund in New York to assist in the aftermath of the devastating Japanese earthquake. Since then, New York member bartenders donate a shift’s worth of tips every month to raise funds for various charities in the Big Apple.
Holly Williams, an old friend of Floyd and bartender at the French Quarter’s Balcony Music Club, decided to found a second chapter here in New Orleans. The interest among local bartenders has been strong and their donations last year added nearly $70,000 to local charities.
The Louisiana chapter will celebrate their fourth anniversary at the fabulous House of Blues Voodoo Garden. This deliciously satisfying event begins at 7pm, and is free and open to the public! If you’d like to invite friends, you can RSVP to the Facebook event here. There will be live music and a raffle, as well as a silent auction. For those who wish to imbibe, there will also be mouthwatering drink specials.
Credit and debit cards will be accepted at the Garden bar for alcohol and tips/donations, but cash will be necessary for the raffle and silent auction. Entertainment will be provided by DJ Snow, Tony Skratchere and Kidd Love. Andrew Healan will be the master of ceremonies. Photo booth will be provided by RedEye Photobooths. Holly Bowman will offer card readings this year as well.
As we are an all-volunteer organization, we are honored to be selected to receive all earnings, including gratuities, from this appetizing evening in the Voodoo Garden. So get your friends together and help make local children’s dreams come true!
There is no requirement to indulge, but if you do, remember to Drink with Purpose!
