Annual Fundraising Weekend to Be Held in New Orleans November 13 & 14
NEW ORLEANS, LA – The countdown begins to Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s annual fundraising weekend returning to New Orleans November 13 – 14, 2015. The country’s best chefs, including New Orleans’ top talent, will join the festivities for a two-day culinary celebration, featuring the Louisiana-inspired outdoor festival Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s Boudin, Bourbon & Beer and wine auction and gala dinner Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s Carnivale du Vin.
Patrons can expect to kick up their boots, raise their glasses, and indulge all weekend long as the organization takes it to next level in true New Orleans style by providing the ultimate culinary experience over the course of two days this fall. Tickets for both events will go on sale August 1.
Funds raised at both events benefit Emeril Lagasse Foundation, which creates opportunities to inspire, mentor and enable youth through life skills development and culinary, nutrition, and arts education. Last year’s fundraising weekend raised $2.25 million for children’s charities.
