It has been three beautiful years of giving back to the community for the New Orleans branch of The Barman’s Fund. That’s something to celebrate!
Help us top last year’s event while helping local children with all proceeds benefitting the A Child’s Wish organization. All tips will be going to this, as well as the proceeds from our raffle full of awesome prizes. This year’s event will be held at Republic January 13th and is free and open to the public. Enjoy live entertainment, drink specials and the chance to get into some do-gooding and debauchery at the same time!
Sounds like fun? Visit www.thebarmsfund.org for more details.

As a non-profit organization, we’re continually amazed at the things people will do in order to help make wishes true for critically ill Louisiana children. Whether it’s arranging for special rides in limos, lining up visits with local superstars like Drew Brees, or donating hard earned money to help fund a trip to Disney World, the charity of our local community is amazing.
One of the groups we’re proud to receive support from is Barman’s Fund NOLA, a group of bartenders who volunteer to donate their tips once a month to send money and supplies to charities.
This video features the story of how Barman’s Fund NOLA donations helped make possible a special trip to Disney for Brandon Alexander, a local three year old boy was born with a rare childhood kidney cancer.

Don’t tell that to Hanna and Emma, two young ladies who spent an entire day raising money for A Child’s Wish by selling lemonade! This was their second year doing this, and they set a new personal record of $250 which was a wonderful gift to our organization.
Hannah’s mother, Trish, heard of the organization from Board member Mike McMyne and was so moved by our program that she recommended A Child’s Wish as the girls non-profit benefactor. Both girls are Honor students and Emma likes gymnastics and Hannah love to dance. We all salute their warm and giving hearts as they share the fruits of their hard work.
