A Patron Party featuring an open bar, live music by Sasha Masakowski, delicious bites, and a Silent Auction.

The theme of this year’s annual fundraiser is: Ghoulwill goes Hollywood! Guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite dead (or living) celebrity or in other costumes/cocktail attire as they enjoy a dazzling evening of live music by Luke Winslow-King, Mia Borders, and The Stooges Brass Band with Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. The evening will be filled with dancing, delectable food, a spooktacular Costume Contest and hours of great entertainment.

Tickets for the Patron Party are $100. Tickets for the 8:00 p.m. general admission party are $50. All tickets are available online at: ghoulwill-ball.eventbrite.com.

Although many know Goodwill from their neighborhood thrift stores, others don’t know that Goodwill offers numerous community programs that provide hope and life changing services to thousands of people annually. The Ghoulwill Ball was created to enhance the public’s understanding of what Goodwill’s nonprofit mission achieves, and provide a revenue stream for Goodwill’s mission of changing lives through the power of work. By participating in the Ghoulwill Ball, guests will be supporting programs and services that served more than 2,500 individuals in Southeast Louisiana last year alone.

“Through its services and programs throughout the year, Goodwill finds ways to support those in our community who are most in need of a hand up, not a hand out. With the continued success of our Ghoulwill Ball, we hope to raise funds for all of our programs, while offering a fun way for those in our community to lend their support,” says William Jessee, President, Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Louisiana.

In addition to supporting the Ghoulwill Ball, there are many ways the community can help Goodwill year round, including hiring Goodwill graduates and donating gently used items to Goodwill’s stores, which helps to support programs such as youth mentoring and a certified culinary arts training program that helps employ and feed individuals who are homeless and living in transitional housing.

Sponsors for the 2014 Ghoulwill Ball include Eustis Insurance & Benefits, Whitney Bank and Humana. For more information about the Ghoulwill Ball or to learn more about Goodwill’s impact in the community, visit www.goodwillno.org.

Goodwill Announces Seven Days of Spring Cleaning

March 14, 2014

More than 70 percent of Americans engage in the annual tradition of spring cleaning, according to a 2013 survey by the American Cleaning Institute. But one of the most common dilemmas for spring cleaners is what to do with all that stuff. As the green movement grows, consumers are increasingly concerned about reusing and recycling. At Goodwill®, we collect used items and put the revenues from their sales toward job creation for people with disabilities and other disadvantaging conditions. To get this year’s spring cleaning season off to a fresh start, we’ve compiled the Seven Days of Spring Cleaning Guide, making it easier than ever to clean out your home and make a difference here in Southeastern Louisiana by donating used goods.
