Halloween New Orleans
Halloween New Orleans has played a vital role in the history of Project Lazarus. Begun in 1983, Halloween New Orleans was established as a private nonprofit organization, with the sole purpose of raising funds to support the mission of Project Lazarus. To date, over $4.6 million has been raised by the dedicated members of Halloween New Orleans for Project Lazarus.
The four-day event includes the famous Lazarus Ball on Thursday night, a dance club night on Friday, the main costume party on Saturday night and a Sunday brunch and French Quarter second line parade. This weekend of fun was originally started as a dinner party given by a few people to honor their friends and loved ones who had died from AIDS and has become the single largest cumulative donor to Project Lazarus since the agency’s inception.
