Join Us Tonight for Cocktails for the Coast!
By Eden Davis, Restore the Mississippi River Delta Campaign
The Restore the Mississippi River Delta Campaign is hosting Cocktails for the Coast tonight (September 25) at the Eiffel Society in New Orleans (2040 St. Charles Ave.) from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. This will be an evening celebrating the beautiful wetlands that serve as our city’s first line of defense. There will be music, food, drinks and fun. The first 60 people who arrive will receive a free drink. After that, there are phenomenal drink specials!
There will be several conservation organizations present to provide information and ways to get involved to save our fragile wetlands. We lose a football field every hour, but there are solutions! Folks from the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation, National Wildlife Federation, Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, Environmental Defense Fund, Louisiana Wildlife Federation, the National Audubon Society and the Lower Ninth Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development will be in attendance to show you how you can be part of the solution to save our coast. To top things off, there will be a raffle drawing for five prize bags.
Come eat, drink and celebrate our beautiful coast tonight at Cocktails for the Coast!
