The Broadmoor Improvement Association (BIA) is searching for vendors, sponsors, and volunteers to join their EATmoor! Spring Festival on Tuesday, May 7. BIA says the event will feature local food trucks, local restaurants and caterers “to raise awareness around bringing healthy and affordable food options for needy families in our community.” Participants are asked to bring non-perishable food items to support the Broadmoor Food Pantry. The Broadmoor Food Pantry provides over 600 meals each month to families in need. EATmoor!
The Bronner Brothers International Beauty Show came to New Orleans last weekend, and it didn’t leave without supporting a local shop after tragedy. According to reports, the show director James Bronner and CEO of Kalaidescope Hair, Jesseca Dupart, raised $10,000 for Unity-1 Beauty Supply and Hair Salon. The Broadmoor shop was the site of a car crash and three-alarm fire on March 20 which caused several fatalities, injuries and extensive property damage. Unity-1 has asked for support and have been raising funds to help them rebuild. According to WDSU, Bronner and Dupart both raised $5,000 each for John and Dr. Beverly Smith, the owners of Unity-1. “The Bronner Brothers are a perfect example of what it looks like when community and philanthropy come together,” said the Broadmoor Improvement Association in a newsletter.
