The Best Mardi Gras Party in Los Angeles: A Benefit for New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward at HM157

The Best Mardi Gras Party in Los Angeles happening February 17 : A Benefit for New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward at HM157

CELEBRATE MARDI GRAS NEW ORLEANS STYLE at HM157!

Experience New Orleans in Los Angeles and enjoy a night of FUNK, BRASS, JAZZ, BURLESQUE, and MORE for this FUNDRAISER benefiting Our School at Blair Grocery (OSBG), a non-profit community farm and education center advocating food justice/sustainability in the area hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina, the lower 9th ward of New Orleans.

What better way to celebrate Mardi Gras than by helping support the renewal of the crescent city?

OSBG's urban farming education program empowers at-risk youth in the area with employment, a safe place to go after school, and access to fresh, healthy food for the kids and their families. The school must raise nearly $100k for building improvements to keep the program going.

Help us help the city that has given us so much beautiful music, culture, and joix de vivre.

Here's a great video interview with one of OSBG's former students explaining the impact the organization has had on his life. Tomorrow's party is all about getting this school re-opened so Turner can keep helping more kids! (well and partyin like they do in the Big Easy :))
