The main event will begin at 6 PM at The Howlin’ Wolf, 907 South Peters St. in New Orleans’ Warehouse District.

Rio Mar Seafood, 800 South Peters St., will host a pre-event patron party from 4:30-6 PM. Patron ticket levels are $250, $500, or $1,000 per couple, with the $500 and $1,000 levels including Times-Picayune-themed gifts. Those tickets are available for online purchase by clicking here. All patron-level tickets are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Money raised will go directly to Times-Picayune employees, freelancers and contractors who lose their jobs or a significant portion of their income as a result of the end of daily publication, minus staff costs for The Howlin’ Wolf event, a nominal per-person fee to cover costs of the Rio Mar event, and a 2% fee being paid to the fund’s 501(c)3 sponsor, the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans, which is also providing financial oversight.
