Returning for its ninth year, Boudin, Bourbon & Beer has become one of the region’s largest fundraisers, featuring over 70 award-winning chefs who will join chef Emeril Lagasse for a night of food, music and philanthropy.
The event allows the foundation to support culinary and nutrition education programs throughout the year.

Boudin, Bourbon & Beer kicks off the Foundation’s two-night signature fundraising weekend and is followed by the nationally recognized wine auction and black-tie gala, Carnivale du Vin, which celebrates its 15th year.
The 2018 fundraising weekend raised $3 million for children’s charities.
