November kicks off the holiday season and many of us begin to think about ways to give back. Michael will be headlining two benefit events in November, both raising funds for incredibly worthy causes:
November 8: New Orleans, LA-Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s Carnivale du Vin
Michael will headline this amazing food and wine event to raise funds for the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, which supports children’s education and non-profit organizations with culinary, nutrition, garden, arts and life skills programs. ELF has distributed more than $5.7 million in grants for children’s charities. Projects funded by the Foundation include an outdoor classroom, gardens, fresh foods cafeteria and teaching kitchen at Edible Schoolyard New Orleans, an accessible learning kitchen for special needs students at St. Michael Special School, a four-year culinary arts program for high school students at New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts, the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Hospitality Center at Café Reconcile, and hospitality training at Liberty’s Kitchen for at-risk youth preparing healthy school meals.

November 13: Washington, DC-Fight For Children’s Fight Night
Michael is excited to also be headlining the 25th Annual Fight Night in Washington, DC. Fight Night brings together heavyweights of business and government, entertainment and community service, as well as legends from the sports and boxing world, for an evening of fun, auctions, exciting entertainment and live professional boxing bouts. One of the most highly acclaimed events in Washington, Fight Night raises funds for Fight For Children and other organizations that provide education and healthcare services to low-income children in Washington, DC. In 2013, Fight Night raised over $3.9 million! Purchase tickets here.
Michael is proud to play a role in raising much-needed funds for these very worthy organizations and hopes his fans turn out to support their important work.
