Thank you to everyone who supported our 2nd annual St. Bernard Parish Culinary Classic.

We raised $36,677!

This fundraiser supports our services in St. Bernard Parish:

  • The ArcGNO Chalmette Community Center provides meaningful daytime engagement for participants who enjoy recreational outings, fitness and wellness activities, and volunteer service to other local non-profit organizations. Last year, for instance, we volunteered regularly at Second Harvest in Arabi and the St. Bernard Animal Shelter in Violet.
  • ArcGNO Residential Support Services provide customized direct support to nearly 100 individuals throughout the metro area. Services range from assistance with hygiene and daily living to budgeting, shopping, and navigation of local transportation systems.

ArcGNO dedicated the Chalmette Community Center’s new patio to Polly Campbell, a local advocate and long-time friend to the Arc of Greater New Orleans.

These renovations were made possible by funds raised from the 2018 SBP Culinary Classic.
