Katrina Relief

By Fritz Hahn

We're getting a large number of e-mails and messages from readers who want to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina and are looking for fundraisers at local restaurants and bars. We'll maintain an ongoing list of fundraising events here, and add more as we get them.

Tonight, for example, you can drink half-price martinis at Lounge 201 when you write a check to benefit the Baton Rouge Red Cross. Or sip $3 beers and snack on half-price food at Tommy Joe's while raising money for the American Red Cross.

If you're organizing a benefit, please e-mail with the following information: date, time, location, name of charity, how money will be collected (at the door, through food/drink sales, etc.), what percentage of proceeds will be donated and the name and phone number of a contact person.
