Brunch fundraisers are all the rage this season and we’ve had so many on our radar that we had no choice but tell you about two this week.
Brunch for Hope: Brunchin’ in N’awlins takes place on September 14, a week earlier than yesterday’s Brunch of the Week selection and a week after this weekend’s Legacy PositiviTEA brunch. So, in reality, you can easily have your brunch plans set for almost all of September.
All while raising money for important causes.
The New Orleans-themed event features food from Chef Blythe Beck of Pink Magnolia and jazzy tunes from Bree and The Fellas. Featured speaker Matthew Riemer, co-author of We Are Everywhere: Protest, Power, and Pride in the History of Queer Liberation ties in the LGBT angle of the brunch, which benefits DHC’s Dallas Hope Center, the first LGBT-focused shelter in the Dallas area, tailored to the needs of individuals ages 18-24.
VIP tickets get you a signed copy of his book, as well as the best seats in the house and a reception with the author and Chef Beck.
It promises to be the next best thing to being in the French Quarter for a jazz brunch. Except you’ll be doing some real good versus passing out drunk.
Or maybe that’s just the way we experience New Orleans.
