What can we say. We hope you were with us and we’re sorry if you weren’t cause this year’s New Orleans Red Dress Event was the best one ever. Even the rain couldn’t dampen our spirts. Dash Rip Rock and Cowboy Mouth rocked the French Quarter as right around 6000 of our friends enjoyed copious amounts of beer and great barbeque.
RED DRESS GRANTS
The Red Dress Grant application site is now open and will be open for the month of September. Any local 501c3 charity that is not nationally funded is welcome to apply for a grant up to the maximum of $5,000. The process is simple and can be completed online. Just go to http://www.neworleanshash.com/grants2013.asp, read the requirements, and fill out the application.
You must be 21 years of age on or before August 10, 2013 to participate – no exceptions – this is an adults only party.
Please share this with your friends. It takes more than just a red dress to be part of this party. You have to register to be able to enjoy the whole event – which includes great food, great bands, more beer than you can imagine, the Red Dress Run and everything else. And only by registering do you support the many New Orleans charities that this event supports – over 50 groups last year and more than $500,000 in the last three years.
You will notice that there are two registration options. The regular registration if for the Red Dress Event on Saturday. The Hasher registration also includes the Red Lingerie Run on Friday night, a special area on Saturday, and the Hangover Run on Sunday. The Hasher option is only available to verifiable hashers. Not a hasher yet and want to be? All you have to do is show up at your nearest local hash and start hashing. You have weeks and weeks before Red Dress to get involved. (See FAQ for more info on this.)
Come back and check on us from time to time. We’ll be adding more as we go along.
