The Bon Vivants in partnership with Tales of the Cocktail Foundation (TOTCF), Edrington Americas, The Daily Beast, and music partner d.b.a. New Orleans are very excited to invite you to the 10th Annual Pig & Punch New Orleans at Crescent Park! Its hard to believe this year marks a full decade of Pig & Punch parties for charity and we are BEYOND excited to share this incredible milestone with you all at our 10th party for charity in New Orleans! Not only does this mark 10 years, we are also hoping to hit a pretty ambitious fundraising goal: $500,000 total raised. This means we really need your help raising a LOT of dollars! Pig & Punch is fortunate enough to have the backing a handful of really wonderful organizations. Were happy to continue to work in connection with TOTCF's mission to educate, advance and support the global hospitality industry while creating a lasting impact in host communities. Edrington is generously helping us again this year by matching part of the funds we raise at the event, which is huge. We're also working with New Orleans Musician's Clinic (NOMAF) to support their initiatives to provide access to medical and mental health services for creatives and hospitality industry members in Louisiana. And of course, we will be donating funds to KIPP New Orleans Schools to help students develop the knowledge and skills they need to seize opportunities. Great education transforms lives! As always there will be great food, great music, great friends, and great vibes, all in the spirit of building community and giving back. Here are the important details: Where: Crescent Park When: Sunday, July 21st Time: 12pm - 5pm What to bring: an empty stomach and open wallet! We will have so much food and so much sweet merch this year. Hogs for the Cause is partnering with us to cook up a storm for you all! Five of their all-star teams are coming out to help keep us full all afternoon. If you are unfamiliar with Hogs for the Cause and what they are all about, please check them out. They do a lot of good for a lot of causes and were honored to work with them this year! Our HFTC teams are: - March of the Pigs - Pork Funk All Stars - Sweet Swine O Mine - Chits & Piggles - Hupigs And to quench your thirst, we will have 8 massive barrels of punch crafted by The Bon Vivants featuring our generous sponsors (check em out below). We are bringing back the Hog & Highballs bar so you can get a quick refreshing quencher in between cups of punch! Our music partner d.b.a. New Orleans on Frenchmen Street is hooking it up with some seriously good musicians again this year! So you can expect to dance your face off the whole time to a bunch of different groups including: - TCB Brass Band - Treme Brass Band - Little Freddie King - Ricky B & crew As you also might now, this event compliments a Volunteer day coordinated a few days before on Tuesday the July 16th, where a large group will descend on a KIPP Campus and do a full day of work like an army. If you're interested in finding out more details about how to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Year after year, the donations continue to get higher and higher. To date, as a result of all of your generosity, Pig & Punch has donated $424,350.22 and coordinated 9,881 volunteer hours of labor at charters schools across the U.S. We really hope that with all your continued love and support, that we'll smash past the $500k and 10k hour markers this year! This is a big year for us! It is very important to us to recognize and show gratitude to all our partners and sponsors on this event series... some long time, some new.
