I received an email from Buffa's today saying that all gigs are still on during and after the storm and they are serving food 24/7 as usual .... so please support this fundraiser!!! No Cover Charge but please donate items or moola to help!! NOLA Grannies is a local grassroots nonprofit volunteer organization providing legal asylum seekers and their children recently released from immigration hearings with essentially nothing but an ankle bracelet - Grannies greet them with a friendly face, offering help navigating complex travel itineraries plus giving food, water and other necessities en route to sponsor homes throughout the country. <<<<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>> Freddie Blue’s Birthday Benefit Bash Supporting NOLA Grannies Respond with The Acoustasonic Sounds of The Friendship Circle Saturday, July 13th, 2019 6-9pm Backroom at Buffa's Bar & Restaurant 1001 Esplanade Avenue, Faubourg Marigny New Orleans 504) 949-0038 Restaurant Open 24/7 Never a Cover Charge <<<<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>> Freddie Blue believes the best gift you can give to help others so each year a New Orleans charity is selected to be the birthday benefactor.
