On Thursday, October 4, the Baton Rouge Emergency Aid Coalition (BREAC) will host its third annual fundraiser. This special silent auction will be held at Louisiana Culinary Institute (LCI) in Baton Rouge. During the event, guests can look forward to delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts prepared by LCI students and BRQ Seafood & Barbeque. Additionally, beer and wine will be served throughout the evening.
Some exciting items up for grabs during the fundraiser include a private consultation at Esom Gallery with artist Tony Mose, a 15-person tour of Cane Land Distilling Company with two bottles of rum, an adjustable base frame with mattress from BR Mattress, two tickets to see Better Than Ezra at L’Auberge Casino, a one-night stay at Hotel Indigo, Arc’teryx jackets, and more.
This year’s sponsors include The Baton Rouge Clinic, AMC and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana. Sustaining Partners include the LCI Foundation, Bacon and Fig, BRQ Seafood & Barbecue, LCI, BR Mattress, and Kinetic Physical Therapy.
BREAC is a purely volunteer organization, created by a group of Baton Rouge women who have a passion for serving others. The coalition’s longest-standing project is “Off the Ground,” which provides mattresses to those affected by the 2016 flood. More than two years later, the coalition continues to receive requests for mattresses.
Through the success of its annual fundraisers, the BREAC has provided over 12,000 meals to children in Livingston Parish; organized drives for various community needs; sent funds to Tennessee after the forest fire that affected the eastern part of the state; partnered with the Cajun Airlift to send essentials to areas impacted by Harvey, Irma, and Maria; staffed a medical shelter in Alexandria; and purchased supplies for those affected by the Northern California wildfires.
This year’s fundraiser will begin at 6:30 p.m. and conclude at 9 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase online. For more information regarding BREAC or the fundraiser, visit the organization’s website.
