UnknownNEW ORLEANS (press release) – The Al Copeland Foundation kicked off its annual November fundraiser #IDidItForTheTurkey online and at Parkway Bakery & Tavern. For the entire month of November the Al Copeland Foundation will sell unique #IDidItForTheTurkey gaiters and face masks with all proceeds going to support the nonprofit organization’s mission to save lives and end cancer. Parkway Bakery & Tavern will join the fundraiser in a different capacity than years past, amid COVID-19 precautions, but will have special “dipjars” located throughout the restaurant to allow patrons to make direct donations to the Al Copeland Foundation.

This year, Parkway Bakery will celebrate with easy to assemble Parkway Thanksgiving Family Meal Kits. “We are thrilled to be serving our Thanksgiving po-boys again this year,” said Justin Kennedy, Parkway general manager & chef. “Being able to make a mark in the community is something we are passionate about, but being able to be a part of something bigger with the Al Copeland Foundation—that makes us proud.” Parkway Thanksgiving Family Meal Kits include two large Thanksgiving poor boys with Parkway memorabilia. The kit feeds four people for just $40 (plus tax) and comes with easy assembly instructions and #ParkwayforPoorboys keepsakes. Through Nov. 23, the meal kit can be pre-ordered Wednesday through Sunday by calling (504)482-3047 for any Tuesday curbside pick-up from 9 am  – 5 pm.

#IDidItForTheTurkey gaiters and face masks can be ordered online at www.alcopelandfoundation.org or purchased at Parkway Bakery & Tavern for $15 each.

Boucaner Wine is also available by the bottle ($15), with proceeds also supporting those fighting cancer. 

The Al Copeland Foundation supports new local cancer research, education and patient programs at the Copeland-LSU Health Science Center Partnership in Viruses, Cancer and Immunotherapy. Parkway Bakery and Tavern, located at 538 Hagan Avenue, has been serving legendary poor boy sandwiches for over 100 years. It has been a family owned and operated business since 1911, and owner Jay Nix has continued that tradition since the day he purchased Parkway from the original family in 1995.
