 Veterans of Foreign Wars Post logoAfter successfully rebuilding their membership over the past few years, the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in New Orleans is working towards renovating their meeting hall on Lyons Street with a pair of fundraisers this week at nearby bars.

The patron party at Grits Bar on 530 Lyons Street will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, and the $150-per-couple admission includes food from Dickie Brennan’s Tableau, specialty cocktails, and a silent auction.

The third annual fundraiser at F & M Patio Bar on 4841 Tchoupitoulas Street will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, and admission is $30. It will feature food from local restaurants, a silent auction, live music, and beer from NOLA Brewing Company.

All proceeds will support the VFW’s rebuilding efforts, which is expected to cost between $400,000 and $500,000, as well as its veterans-assistance programs.

Those who can’t make it and wish to donate to the building fund or to become a sponsor can contact donations@nolavfw.org.
