Halloween 27 in New Orleans Presents "Famous"

A benifit for Project Lazarus October 28th - 31st

Friday, October 22, 2010 - 7:04pm

The mission of Halloween's in New Orleans is to provide funding for Project Lazarus, a home in New Orleans for men and women with AIDS, so that they may provide healthcare and support services for their residents. Project Lazarus, which provides direct AIDS services, is the sole beneficiary of all funds which are raised.

2010 marks the 25th year that Project Lazarus has been in operation! It was created by a group of wonderful volunteers back then when just the mention of the acronym “HIV/AIDS” brought about a myriad of emotions and feelings in everyone. Many of those wonderful volunteers/supporters are still involved with Project Lazarus today in some way, and several donate their support through Halloween’s in New Orleans.

Oftentimes residents are admitted to Project Lazarus that truly have no place else to go. They are from all walks of life because, as we know, this disease does not discriminate in the least. Ultimately designed to help people living with HIV/AIDS achieve total independent living once again, some Project Lazarus residents unfortunately do not survive the debilitating effects of this disease and must be put on hospice here at the facility.

As every case is different, Project Lazarus has provided help and comfort to people living and dying of HIV/AIDS through Halloween’s in New Orleans! In the past 25 years, Project Lazarus has helped over 1,000 people receive critical assistance who otherwise may not have received help from anywhere. For many residents now, Lazarus is a turning point leading to success and well being.

Mayor's Welcome:

Mittchell J. Landrieu, Major City of New Orleans

Dear Friends,

It is my distinct pleasure as the Mayor of New Orleans, and on behalf of   all her citizens, to extend a warm welcome to our city for Halloween 27. New Orleanians are tremendously proud of their city, a place known for its warm hospitality, authenticity and diversity. We are a city that is blessed with a wealth of cultural riches and infused with a relaxed and open spirit that characterizes the best of our Southern lifestyle.

This is a great season to enjoy all our city has to offer. With our openness to diversity and our incredibly rich and colorful history, including the reputation for being one of the most haunted places in America, there is no better place to celebrate Halloween.

Let me also take this opportunity to congratulate Project Lazarus on 25 years of dedicated service to people with HIV/AIDS in the Gulf Coast region. This seasonal celebration of Halloween produced by Halloween’s In New Orleans, Inc. has left its generous mark on Project Lazarus and the entire city, with the important economic boost the surrounding events provides.

While in New Orleans take time to enjoy our renowned cultural offerings, including an incomparable cuisine with flavors like no other, a music scene that never stops, a rich sense of history, unique architecture, and neighborhoods that are warm and welcoming. And keep in mind our annual calendar of events, filled with festivals and cultural celebrations, including the exciting Southern Decadence Festival celebrated every Labor Day weekend.

The annual Mardi Gras season features celebrations like no other in the nation, with a sense of fun and frivolity that is open to everyone. Combine unforgettable events with trendy shops, antique stores and boutiques, museums and galleries, and an array of hotels and lodging that are as diverse as their clientele, and you are certain to find in New Orleans a home away from home.

Our city offers an exciting and memorable experience for visitors of all interests and backgrounds, ensuring that your visit will be a celebration of the senses and truly unforgettable.
