All proceeds will benefit The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund supporting fishermen and their families in Louisiana’s hardest hit towns.. Nearly a third of our nation’s seafood is harvested in Louisiana’s waters and 6,400 fishermen in Louisiana’s coastal parishes are facing unemployment as a result of the ongoing disaster. The Greater New Orleans Foundation is a certified 501c.
