At its recent Board meeting, the Friday Night Before Mardi Gras organization made its yearly grant donations to four area non-profits, supporting their direct service programs which reach a wide variety of members of the LGBTQ community. This year FNBMG was able to direct a total of $9,000 back into the community through Breakout Youth, NO AGE NOLA, Gay Easter Parade and Food for Friends, and Crescent Care and the NOAIDS Task Force. In addition, FNBMG raised $7,350 for the medical expenses of Leonel Melendez, a New Orleans area native and a victim of the horrific tragedy at the Pulse Club in Orlando.
Here are some photos of the grant distributions. Thanks to all of our partners for joining us - we are honored to be able to support these wonderful organizations who do such good work for our communities.
