Three Foundations, One Spectacular Night of Gettin’ and Givin’

We are excited to get the opportunity to collaborate with three local charitable organizations focused on bettering the lives of those in need in New Orleans– The Al Copeland Foundation, Dress for Success New Orleans, and Junior League of New Orleans. All proceeds from this event will be given back to fund their supportive efforts.

The Al Copeland Foundation

The Al Copeland Foundation was established after Al Copeland lost his battle to Merkel Cell Carcinoma. The foundation was started by his children to carry on their Dad’s wish to cure cancer and directly funds local cancer research at LSU in New Orleans.

Dress for Success New Orleans

The mission of Dress for Success New Orleans is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Junior League of New Orleans

The Junior League of New Orleans is an organization of 2100 women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

We invite you to support Brander Gives Back’s Gettin’ Piggy With It as an event sponsor. Please feel free to mail in your donation or buy general or patron tickets online now.
