Mark your calendars for November 13 and click the link above for details!

New t-shirt campaign

We have had lots more requests from people for Barman’s Fund t-shirts so we have decided to run another t-shirt drive on Booster. Click the title link, pick one up, and show people how you Drink With Purpose! #dwpnola

Back to school supplies, Barman’s Fund style!

One of the most heartwarming drops of the year: ten whiskey-breathed Santas delivering Xmas in July to Children’s Hospital!

The Barman’s Fund tries to find opportunities to help with our time and our sweat as well as our money. Recently the New Orleans crew had a volunteer day with Habitat For Humanity helping put together a house for the Frazier family.

Two drop-offs yesterday! Gave money to Families Helping Families (above) for graduation materials that will help new graduates with mental disabilities to find jobs. Then, dropped off tons of art supplies for the Kingsley House summer programs (below).

Eleanor McMain was a prominent social worker and force for good in New Orleans at the turn of the century. She ran Kingsley House for over 30 years, created many programs, and even helped establish the Tulane School of Social Work. The McMain Citizenship Award is given out every year in her honor to a person or organization who has given outstanding service to the community. This year, we are proud to announce that the NOLA branch of The Barman’s Fund has been recognized with this award!
