A Return to NOLA

A Return to NOLA

From Andrea Groner

It has been 10 years since I have been to my favorite city and former home, New Orleans. I am fundraising to ease the costs of a trip down south to celebrate the life of a dear friend, Shena, who passed away in 2021.

More Info

While my 35th birthday is not until July, Shena's mother Tina has expressed need for some time with me sooner rather than later- so I am currently in cahoots with her husband, Kenny, to drive down and surprise her in two weeks.  Our trip to New Orleans will happen from May 19th-23rd, and I am asking for (premature) birthday contributions to ease the financial burden of this trip.  This is Josh's FIRST TIME to the Big Easy, and I want to make sure we can have a nice time without worrying about funds.

Specific items I am fundraising for:

1.)  Fuel for the drive:  $132 round-trip (calculated via fueleconomy.gov using specs from Josh's Prius)

2.) FOOD:  $300 (this is just an estimate, as food will likely be the biggest expense of the trip.  As you can imagine, or know from experience, food is one of the BEST parts about New Orleans.  Since this is Josh's first time there, so we want to taste it all!)

3.) Extra Excursions, if at all possible:  Some possible fun activities (entirely optional, of course, as the trip's focus is to spend time with Tina)

           - Haunted History Tour:  $30/person on average for 90-minute tour

           -Airboat Trip:  Between $50-$100 per person depending on availability and boat size

Thank you all so much, any amount is so appreciated.
