We are happy to announce that we were able to give just over $169,000 to 73 local charities this year. That is only possible thanks to all of you who registered and partied with us FOR New Orleans. Red Dress 2016 will be on August 13th (always the second Saturday} and registration will be open in April. In the mean time, if you would like to know more about the New Orleans Hash House Harriers and hashing in the area, we suggest that you check us out at NOH3.com. Come hash with us.
What a great Red Dress Event!. The new run course was a hit. The food with the new catfish addition from Corky’s was a hit. The Redd’s and tacos pairings were a hit. The entertainment was great. The weather was HOT as…but at least no rain this year. We had more Hashers this year than ever – almost 600 and from all over – so great sharing time with all of you. And we all are going to take a little break for a couple of months before it is time to plan for next year – August 13th, already on our calendars.
Even before Red Dress is finished each year, we start getting questions about how a group can get a grant. Our grant application process is open for the month of September and there will be a link here to the online application during that period. The maximum grant is $5,000 and grants are available to any local 501c3 charity that is not nationally funded. We have always provided grants to a very diverse bunch of groups, with our priority being those groups who provide services to a large segment of our New Orleans community.

Nice to see the Red Dress Run featured in Yelp.
The New Orleans Red Dress Run just keeps getting better and better. Thanks to all of you NOH3 has now given away more that one million dollars to more than 100 local charities. Let’s see how much more that we can add to that this year. Encourage all of your friends to register, to be part of the real Red Dress event, and to support New Orleans while having a blast. Everyone needs to understand that just hanging in the Quarter in a dress is lame and anyone who does that is missing something truly great.
You must be 21 years of age on or before August 8, 2015 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.
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.
