For more than 117 years, Galatoire’s has been committed to the city of New Orleans and supports local causes and cultural programs throughout the community through Galatoire Foundation, a New Orleans-based, non-profit organization.
2022-23 TABLE AUCTIONS
100% of the proceeds from the Christmas and Mardi Gras table auctions will benefit the Louisiana Museum Foundation on behalf of the New Orleans Jazz Museum, Shepherding Hope Foundation and Galatoire Foundation.
Each year, the Galatoire Foundation holds Christmas and Mardi Gras table auctions to assist in supporting local nonprofit organizations. Started in 2006, the Christmas and Mardi Gras table auctions have raised more than $3.3 million for local charities. Each fun and lively auction allows guests the opportunity to reserve a table on Galatoire’s famed first floor the Fridays before Christmas and Mardi Gras.
Since the inception, all proceeds have benefitted dozens New Orleans-area charitable organizations, from neighborhood rebuilding projects and crime prevention to youth programs and entrepreneurship efforts. Past recipients have included Covenant House, Platio Planters of the Vieux Carré, Kingsley House, Dress for Success, Audubon Nature Institute, Liberty’s Kitchen, The Idea Village, The New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation and more. The Galatoire Foundation has been dedicated to giving back to the New Orleans community and region that has patronized Galatoire’s for generations.
