In partnership with New Orleans Catholic Cemeteries, the October 26 event. Taking place against a backdrop of New Orleans’ unique and historic above-ground tombs at St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, the event will feature a patron party that includes a special presentation by Honorary Chair Poppy Tooker, producer and host of Louisiana Eats!, paired with specialty food and cocktails.
