Bon Appétit Chez Baton Rouge
Another year of Bon Appétit is upon us and even though much has changed, the mission of Project Lazarus has stayed the same, to help heal and empower people living with HIV/AIDS by focusing on wellness, providing housing and offering important support services.
This year we are celebrating Bon Appétit "Chez Vous"- at home!
Bon Appétit is a major fundraising event for Project Lazarus, an organization we are very passionate about. Project Lazarus provides housing and social services for people living with HIV and need our help now, more than ever. They have remained open during the pandemic and have taken every possible measure to ensure a safe place for their community to call home. Many of the crucial fundraisers needed to fund these services have been cancelled due to the pandemic. Despite the circumstances, they still offer mental health counseling, housing case management, social services, educational opportunities and continue to fulfil their mission of healing and empowering people living with HIV.
This is where you come in! To help ensure that Project Lazarus can continue meeting this critical need, we are reaching out to all that have supported us, the Drag Brunch and Drag Dinner to give what they can this year for Project Lazarus. This year has thrown every possible obstacle out for so many. We were unable to throw our annual Drag & Dine event this year due to the pandemic. But even though the party has been cancelled, the intention behind the event has always been to bring everyone in the community together to raise funds for Project Lazarus and we still hope we can do just that!
Whether it be $5, $10, sharing the event on social media, or keeping a mental placecard for a better time, we ask you to open your hearts to Project Lazarus as it has to so many in our community.
For every dollar raised here in our virtual fundraiser, The Lucky Law Firm, PLC & Dr. Khanh Ho each have graciously offered to match the total donation amount to Project Lazarus.
We are also excited to raffle off a SIX NIGHT SUMMER VACATION at The Portofino Island Resort in Pensacola, FL! (Excluding Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Blue Angels Weekends). For every $20 increment of your donation, your name will be entered into the drawing! $20 equals one ticket, $40 equals two tickets, $100 equals 5 tickets, etc.
100% of your donation goes directly to Project Lazarus!
Project Lazarus works tirelessly to be of service to so many. Let's come together this week to be of service to them!
Robert, Michael, Khanh & Jason
