All donations and part of every registration goes to our charity - Makin' Groceries with Meals for Musicians.
Makin’ Groceries provides weekly, home-delivered care packages containing fresh groceries, healthy prepared meals, and lagniappe to a group of 100+ elderly and immunocompromised musicians, culture bearers and their families to show gratitude and admiration for the profound influence they had on our local culture.
The initiative directly addresses the food insecurity needs of an elderly and medically vulnerable segment of the local cultural community, which includes musicians, Mardi Gras Indians, social aid and pleasure club members, visual artists, and dancers, among others.
