The Barman's Fund helps those in need in our communities.

#DRINKWITHPURPOSE

Thank you letters from Mrs. Inman’s and Mrs. Aronin’s classes. The Barman’s Fund sponsored art supplies for classrooms this spring. 

NOLA BMF is having a blood drive for a sick young girl. All blood types are welcome, please message gwhitebulldog@gmail.com ASAP to sign up. Drive will be at Hoshun on Tuesday the 8th 11-3. See flyer for more details.
NO/AIDS does more than just offering testing and distributing condoms. They have branches that help with housing, other medical services, and even their own small food bank. NOLA BMF has worked with them before, and this time our help came in the form of camera equipment to help with their youth outreach program.

The Barman’s Fund NOLA Second Anniversary Party was a huge success. We raised over $6000 for A Child’s Wish of Louisiana. In conjunction with our donation shifts throughout the month of January 2014, our total donation was $9000! 

Thanks to all who came to support us in January and helped kick off 2014 in true Barman’s Fund style. 

Don’t forget to check our calendars and #DrinkWithPurpose.

The Barman’s Fund NOLA is proud to announce our Second Anniversary Party on Tuesday, January 14th. The pool is heated and the hot tub will be on, don’t forget your swimsuits! 

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to Barman’s Fund events in December. We know that times are tight, but New Orleans dug deep and helped us get household supplies and gifts for the Metro Center for Women and Children, and make xmas happen for 30 kids through the Raintree program. Pat yourselves on the back, crescent city!

Barman’s Fund members donating their time to serve drinks at events supporting the Kingsley House (above) and ARC of New Orleans (Below). All that, plus six donated shifts at bars around town, made last week a busy one indeed for our BMFers!

Back in August, NOLA Barman’s Fund donated 1,300 pounds of food to the Second Harvest Food Bank. When the food bank started their Harvest the Music festival to raise funds they called us for more help. BMFers couldn’t have been happier to oblige, with our members volunteering in the wine tent every Wednesday for the two month run of the festival. Giving time, as well as money, is part of what we are here for.
