“LHF came through for me in a huge way after I was involved in a car accident that put me out of work for about 5 months. Not only was I able to continue my recovery without the added stress of paying rent and medical bills, the LHF really showed me how the hospitality community here takes care of its own. I’m not sure how I could have made it through without their support.”

— Lauren Bailey, Sous Chef at Willa Jean 

“The Louisiana Hospitality Foundation swept in to offer assistance at a time when I was overwhelmed with the cost of a double mastectomy. Medical expenses were mounting and it was hard to focus on happiness and health (which is critical when dealing with disease.) This unexpected act of kindness put a smile on my face when I felt there was little to smile about, and much-needed funds to help cover my already exorbitant medical expenses! This was a very bright spot in a very dark ordeal and I’ve emerged better for it, and with a deep appreciation for why the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation exists.”

— Lyn Morein, General Manager, Bayona

“When I was diagnosed with cancer and had surgery I knew two things, 1. It was going to be expensive and 2. I was lucky. Lucky that they found the cancer and was able to remove it, treatment would be more preventative than still trying to kill it. The statements were already coming in from treatment and amounts were huge! I compared my costs to the insurance and reminded myself how lucky I was. But our bills were mounting as well and I wasn’t sure how those were going to be handled. The LA Hospitality Foundation provided a grant to my family that covered most of my out of pocket expenses. I knew I was one of the lucky cancer patients, I just didn’t realize how lucky!”

— Phil DeGruy, previously Owner of Phil’s Grill, now with New Orleans Fish House
