Looking Back at Our Lake Charles and Metairie Aioli Dinners

Lake Charles Aioli Dinner Raises $40,000 for Arts Education

On October 1, 2015, the Aioli Dinner Supper Club gathered at the soon-to-open Blue Dog Cafe in Lake Charles for a night to support arts in education in Louisiana. Guests enjoyed a rustic, four-course meal prepared by Chef Greg Doucet of Jolie's Louisiana Bistro. Through tickets sales and our live and silent auctions, we were able to raise over $40,000 for GRFA's arts in education programs, including Louisiana A+ Schools, our annual Scholarship Art Contest, and George's Art Closet.

Thank you to our friends in the Lake Charles community for your incredible support and for making this Aioli Dinner Supper Club event such a memorable night!

Metairie Aioli Dinner Raises $42,000 for Art Contest Scholarships

A week after our Lake Charles event, the Aioli Dinner Supper Club dined at the home of Christine Vinson in Metairie. In addition to the generosity of our hostess, we were thrilled to have the dinner sponsored by Vinson Guard Service, Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, and the Krewe of Orpheus.

Guests shared a four-course meal prepared by Chef Mark Quitney of the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, enjoyed music performed on the Rodrigue Steinway, and raised over $42,000 to support our annual Scholarship Art Contest!

Our 2016 Art Contest, in partnership with the Krewe of Orpheus, invites Louisiana high school juniors and seniors to submit original works of art for the theme "Louisiana Celebrates Carnival." In the Spring, GRFA will award $45,000 in college scholarships to 15 talented finalists!
