It’s time to “Party for a Purpose”

We are partnering with a local non-profit to give you a chance to give back to the New Orleans community while you are here having a good time. We put many couples in touch with volunteer organizations in past years and finally decided to make it a more official opportunity for our attendees.
               
Most of you come for the party, some come for the education, many of you come just because of New Orleans. The food, the music, the culture that is the Big Easy is what inspires so many to visit and now is your chance to give back!

Each day will have a different project addressing a different social issue in New Orleans. Check out the details below and to find out more information and explore the different potential project opportunities! You can sign up for one, two, three or all four days. It will only take up roughly four hours of your time and will give you an amazing experience while helping out the New Orleans community!

There is a cost of $50 (per person per day/project) that will cover the transportation to and from the volunteer site, lunch, all equipment/supplies and includes a $10 donation on your behalf to your host organization. You will also get a “Party with a Purpose - I Volunteered” T Shirt!

New Orleans is a city that struggles in so many ways, yet it always shines for it’s visitors. BY giving back to the communities outside the tourist zones, you are truly volunteering for something that changes lives and inspires others.
