We had a GREAT Stella Shouting Contest last Sunday to kickoff Festival Week, and we're still raising money to fund the New Orleans Family Justice Center, a partnership of agencies dedicated to ending domestic violence. The NOFJC provides access to free crisis services and shelter, legal aid, advocacy and case management, trauma counseling, and prevention education.
And we're so appreciative that the Goldring Family Foundation has joined us in these efforts as a sponsor for the fundraiser with a generous cash donation. Join your money with theirs for the first ever Festival fundraiser for our New Orleans community! DONATE TO STELLA FUNDRAISER HERE
