Share the Bounty: Food Bank Fundraiser and Silent Auction

The Ogden Park Civic Association and Radio Bar invite you to Share The Bounty: A Flood Of Giving!

Come out for a silent auction benefiting the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank! The silent auction will close at 7pm. You must be present to win.

It is once again time for friends and family to gather over holiday food and drink. During this festive season, we ask you to join Ogden Park Civic Association in our second annual Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank fundraiser and silent auction. This year’s flood has created an even greater need for assistance in Baton Rouge. 

During the floods, the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank felt the full force of this disaster. Their warehouse and offices took on four feet of water, resulting in the loss of delivery vehicles, refrigeration units and 1 million pounds of food. 

This year we will collect cash donations and have a silent auction to raise funds to assist in the rebuild of this great Baton Rouge institution. Please join us at the Radio Bar on December 4th for some free food, courtesy of Radio Bar, and help us provide meals to the 76,000 (17.2%) East Baton Rouge residents who are food insecure. 

Stay tuned for information about the goodies that will be up for auction!
