Join Grace at the Greenlight and Positive Legacy as we serve breakfast to the homeless and treat them to a FREE FUNK FEST on Wednesday May 3rd. There will be two volunteer shifts at 6:15am and 10:15am. The 6:15 am shift will serve breakfast to the homeless, and the 10:15 am shift will help with the free funk fest. Contact email@example.com to register.
Grace supporters, the Fat Bankers’ Social Aid & Pleasure Club, was founded as a Mardi Gras group dedicated to bringing funk to the people though Mardi Gras floats. It has built its most recent float, the Funky Uncle Lounge, as a rolling sound stage with studio quality sound. A mission of this creation is to bring free, quality music (funk of course) to the New Orleans community throughout the year. The first of these community shows will be Thursday May 3rd.
We will pay it forward to volunteers by treating them to a pre-night of funk with Eddie Roberts of the New Mastersounds, Soul Project and friends on May 2nd at Voo Doo Two Lounge, starting at 6pm. New Orleans and its community are part of the genesis for Funk music worldwide. Funk is the soul of NOLA and its people. We are bringing FREE FUNK to the people! There’s NO COVER CHARGE for the show on May 2nd and DONATIONS for the homeless will kindly be accepted at the door.
Grace believes community is a basic human need, whether it’s people sharing a meal or someone getting home to a loved one. We believe that the integration of the homeless, volunteers, Positive Legacy and Fat Banker communities in New Orleans during Jazz Fest is the perfect way to use our collective souls in breaking down the social barriers that bind minds and create a false image of separateness.
