Fundraiser for victims of Mother's Day second line violence

Posted By on Mon, May 13, 2013 at 1:39 PM

We're still putting together the specifics, but Gambit's nonprofit arm, The Foundation for Entertainment, Development and Education (FEDE), which produces the annual Big Easy Awards, will be teaming with the Tipitina's Foundation to raise funds for the victims of the Mother's Day shootings.

Mary von Kurnatowski, founder of the Tipitina's Foundation, will be making the club available for a benefit. No date yet, but we hope to hold the benefit in the next two weeks. Marie Lovejoy, FEDE's executive director, says "there is no shortage of musicians willing and ready to participate."

Gambit will also set up a webpage for donations, and is working with a local bank where people can drop off donations in person.

We realize this information is very preliminary, but it's in response to the many queries we've received since yesterday. Gambit and the Tipitina's Foundation will update you here on Blog of New Orleans as soon as we have more details, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
