May 2 marks the fourth annual GiveNOLA Day. This 24-hour giving event helps make our nonprofits and community stronger. This year, GiveNOLA Day organizer, the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is also hosting GiveNOLA Fest, a free concert from 4:30-8PM at the Center for Philanthropy.
Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Irma Thomas and Rebirth Brass Band will headline with refreshments from Company Burger, Taceaux Loceaux and Blue Oak BBQ available for purchase. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the “Lagniappe Fund,” a local pool of incentive dollars raised by sponsors that will be proportionally shared with every participating nonprofit.
