The Galatoire Foundation Christmas Table Auction was recently held at Galatoire’s.

Funds raised at the auction benefit two local nonprofits, the Louisiana Lighthouse and Liberty’s Kitchen.

Liberty’s Kitchen is dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable New Orleans youth by focusing on employability and life skills training, and by providing freshly prepared, nutritious meals to schoolchildren.

Lighthouse Louisiana serves the blind and visually impaired community by providing quality products, services and opportunities for independence.

Attendees bid on the chance to reserve a table at Galatoire’s for the Friday before Christmas, one of its busiest and most popular days of the year.
