Bourbon Heat Philanthropy

The owners and operators of Bourbon Heat feel blessed to be able to serve the greater community whenever possible. Bourbon Heat has been involved with and supported various causes since opening and continues to do so. We have included passages from some of the letters of thanks below. We don’t support causes for praise, but because we believe in the work they are doing. These comments from this wide array of causes letting us know we helped make a difference are all the gratification we need. Just as New Orleans has many diverse qualities, so do the causes we support. We invite you to join us in supporting some of the causes we find worthy.

Event Pros Take Action 

We want to thank Bourbon Heat for generously hosting our kickoff party for the fourth year, as we return to New Orleans for the fifth year to continue to help in the rebuilding after Katrina.

Councilmember Nadine Ramsey / Zulu Thanksgiving Luncheon

It was truly a great feeling to not only donate but to actually help serve turkey and all the fixings for the Councilmember Nadine Ramsey / Zulu Thanksgiving luncheon for senior citizens! We would like to give a special thanks to our councilwoman Nadine Ramsey, her staff, & the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club for allowing Bourbon Heat to be a part of such a special event. We will see you guys next year!

Alaina Romain Fundraiser

I want to thank Angelo Farrell and the management and staff as well as all the great musicians, Kermit Ruffins, Rockin Doopsie, 5th Ward Weebie, James Andrews, Guitar Slim and Big Freedia, that came together to raise money for my family, after my three children and I were shot on our porch.  Just three days after the shooting a full-scale fundraiser was put on at Bourbon Heat that raised money for my family in our moment of need.

We appreciate your generous partnership to provide support for our police officers at this critical time.

The American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association 

Thank you so much for your support and generosity during Heart Health month. We greatly appreciate your efforts to raise awareness and funds.

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for your generosity and planning for Don't Smoke, Prevent Stroke. For a first-year event I think it was very successful. We had over a million media impressions for the Don't Smoke, Prevent Stroke initiative! This is more than any other community event for the American Heart Association.

Cathedral Academy Fundraiser 

Bourbon Heat at 711 Bourbon St., has turned up the heat for the first Annual Spaghettibowl! Despite the cold temperatures forecast for Sunday, we will be toasty warm outside, thanks to Bourbon Heat. I was going to get the expensive tall propane heaters we couldn’t afford. Bourbon Heat stepped in and purchased them. As you know Bourbon Heat is also responsible for that huge billboard advertisement along 1-10 and those radio advertisements

Leslie Sandusky
Spaghettibowl Committee

Just wanted to let you know that I think Leslie got it exactly right when she dubbed you Spaghettibowl’s “knight in shining armor.” Thank you so much for all your help for the event and the school
