New Orleans Women & Children’s Shelter’s “Bubbles and Bubbly Family Picnic”

This fun, family-friendly picnic benefited our community’s only homeless shelter for intact families

 

The “Bubbles and Bubbly Family Picnic,” presented by Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company, served as a fundraiser to support our community’s only homeless shelter for intact families: the New Orleans Women and Children’s Shelter. Picnic participants at the sold-out event enjoyed a fun day of food from local restaurants, bubbles for adults (including champagne and beer), actual bubbles for the kids to play with, games, live entertainment, a live auction and more at The Peristyle at City Park.

Participating restaurants included Dat Dog, Fiorella’s, Gracious Bakery, St. James Cheese Company, Tartine and Toups’ Meatery.

Joshua “Mr. Have a Great Day” Starkman and Friends provided live entertainment. A live auction included prizes such as a private dinner by Chef Isaac Toups.

The 2021 Chair Families were: the Chaisson-Linares Family, the Reade Family, the Starr Family, the Toups Family and the Walner Family.
