Local Fundraising Event

Join us at the WRJ Antoine’s Restaurant Fundraising Event on Thursday, May 30th at 12:00pm-3:00pm for a delicious lunch with plenty of southern hospitality. While you support WRJ’s important work, you will dine at Antoine’s, a circa 1840 old-world “grand dame” of fine French-Creole dining, and enjoy the musical accompaniment and shared wisdom of a local jazz trio band. Attendance at the event includes a scrumptious 3-course meal (including a fish or vegetarian entree), drink from the bar, and jazz entertainment. Our VIP option includes premiere seating and a unique gift. A portion of your purchase is a tax-deductible donation to WRJ. Sign-ups through registration are now closed, but please email wrjregistrar@wrj.org to be added to our rolling wait list. Limited spots are still available, but filling fast!
