This year, celebrate the Center from the comfort of your home with a catered cocktail party or in-person with Manny Frias of Frias Family Wine and Tony Lombardi of Lombardi Vineyards.

On Thursday, March 25th, gather your quaranteam, and enjoy a custom-curated cocktail party presented by Heirloom Cuisine. This is a full-service staff event: you provide the location, we provide the rest! While you're celebrating, be sure to log on to catch The No-Geaux-Not-So-Late-Night Variety Show, which will bring together musical performances and special guests in honor of the Center.

Then, on Saturday, March 27th, we are pleased to present Manny Frias of Frias Family Vineyard & Tony Lombardi of Lombardi Wines and local chefs Chris Motto and Jeremy Coco will host a one-of-a-kind wine tasting event. Tickets are limited.

Proceeds raised go directly towards the medically necessary therapies for the over 600 children from 14 parishes who come through our doors each year. Our team utilizes multidisciplinary approaches to give children with diagnoses such as cerebral palsy, autism, ADHD, or a speech articulation the tools they need to succeed. Whether that's taking their first steps, learning to feed themselves, or reading at grade level, each child receives personalized, holistic care. As the only pediatric clinic in Baton Rouge that does not cap Medicaid recipients, we have a growing waitlist of clients awaiting therapy services. Your support helps meet our community's needs and can change a child's life forever.

We know this fundraiser looks different from previous years. If anything is unclear or if you would like additional information, please contact Lindi Rubin Spalatin at lspalatin@mcmainscdc.org or 225-923-3420!


How it works


On Thursday, March 25th, we are premiering the No-Geaux-Late-Night Varitey Show at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to tune in, but we are also offering the opportunity to throw a watch party from the comfort of your home or with a small group of friends at a local restaurant.

Mestizo Louisiana Mexican Cuisine is hosting Manny Frias and Southern Pearl Oyster House is hosting Tony Lombardi on Thursday with space for up to 10 of friends. These are our way of safely presenting a gala-style table with only one table available at each location. They are being sold on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you'd like more information, contact Lindi at lspalatin@mcmainscdc.org or 225-923-3420.

If you'd rather throw your own party, we've got you covered as well! Heirloom Cuisine is offering an in-home catered cocktail party for up to ten people. Take a look at the menu here! The deadline to reserve a cocktail party is March 13, 2021.

On Saturday, March 27th, Manny and Tony are teaming up with local chefs Chris Motto and Jeremy Coco for a unique experience hosted at a local residence. Tickets are $150 and can be purchased here. Space is limited.
