An Artful Way to Give

We are very grateful for the support and dedication of the New Orleans community to Poydras Home’s annual fundraiser. We hope you will also choose to make Poydras a priority in your charitable giving. Consider a corporate or individual patron sponsorship of the Celebratory Bicentennial Gala. Our Gala will be held on Thursday evening October 26th from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

Gala proceeds benefit the residents of Poydras Home. In addition to the donations of participating artists who donate a percentage of their sales to Poydras Home, sponsorships and Gala ticket sales are critical in helping to meet the funding goals of specific identified needs of our residents each year. This year in honor of the 200th Birthday Poydras is giving residents a scenic Park, Koi Pond, Patio, Gardens and Gazebo. Proceeds from the Bicentennial Gala are dedicated to the 200th Birthday Gift.

The ultimate experience for both serious collectors of art and the casual enthusiast, the Annual Fundraiser features a Patron Party and art exhibition. An annual tradition in New Orleans since its inaugural event in 1994, the area-renowned Poydras juried art exhibition showcases luminaries from the local and regional art scenes with a hanging juried art and photography exhibition in its historic main building showcasing juried art and fine crafts. The show features original works of art by New Orleans and regional artists.

The Gala this year will be held at Poydras Home where patrons and guests can savor gourmet culinary delights while having the first opportunity to preview and purchase the juried art. The evening includes live entertainment. Tickets to the Celebratory Gala are $100.

We welcome your participation and your support is needed. For more information about corporate or patron level sponsorships of the Celebratory Bicentennial Gala, call the Development Dept. at 504-897-0535 or email Vice-President of Development Charlotte Thomas at
