May 27, 2013, Memorial Day, Quarter Rat Monthly (QRM) is hosting a crawfish boil competition at Bayou Beer Garden in the Mid City neighborhood of New Orleans. The proceeds from the event will be directed to The Barman’s Fund, a group of local bartenders who pool tips to support the community. This month’s charities are STAIR, a group working one on one with students to assist them with reading skills, and Crescent City Lights Youth Theatre, to sponsor 4 children attending the summer program. There will be a $10 cover charge for the event and the QRM Boil Champion will be decided by tips collected at each table. At least 4 local businesses will be boiling.
CASA New Orleans (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is an agency that advocates on behalf of children (birth to 18+) who have been judged victims of abuse and/or neglect. A CASA volunteer offers a child trust and advocacy during complex legal proceedings. Interacting and explaining to the child what is going on, the CASA may be the only stable and continuous presence in the child’s life.
