Mardi Gras at HM157: A Benefit for New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward

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.
