Since the majority of funds raised through ticket sales goes directly to FAs in need, Ladies Day depends upon its membership dues to pay basic operating expenses. Membership is open to everyone. To join you simply need to make an annual $25 donation. While the extent of need is always the determining factor when it comes to distributing financial assistance, members are given additional consideration.
If you are interested in joining this wonderful organization, just fill out a membership form. Mail it along with your $25 annual membership dues check payable to Ladies Day Fund to Ladies Day Fund, 1000 Bourbon Street, # 370, New Orleans, LA 70116. Please be sure to include your phone number and write “Membership Dues” on your check. If you would like to receive news of LDF events and other important information, please include your e-mail address. You will be added to our list. If you have any questions, you can contact a Ladies Day Board member.
The second way to be involved is to either attend the annual fundraiser or buy raffle tickets which may be tax deductible for the event.
