 Every year in May, MotherShip Foundation brings 30,000 people to the banks of Bayou St. John for the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Music and Arts Festival. But have you ever wondered what MotherShip Foundation does after Bayou Boogaloo? Well, for the past year MotherShip has been establishing partnerships, securing sponsors, and raising over $30,000 to support its “Restore the Bayou Canopy Campaign.” With five new 200-gallon live oak trees planted along Bayou St. John earlier this year, the project has already exceeded its original goal of replacing the four live oaks that were damaged during Hurricanes Katrina and Isaac. And we’ve got more good news. This fall, MotherShip Foundation is investing another $11,000 to plant one 300-gallon live oak along with two massive 670-gallon live oaks. Yes, indeed!

On Nov. 14, 2013 from 7-10pm, MotherShip Foundation will host a fundraiser and auction benefitting the Restore the Bayou Canopy Campaign. The event will take place at Pearl Wine Co. in the American Can Building and will feature entertainment by local artists TBA. In addition to the musical entertainment, Marlin Miller—the artist who carved the public art sculpture out of the dead oak tree on the corner of Orleans Ave and Jeff Davis Pkwy—will also be at the event to share his story and auction off a few or his one-of-a-kind sculptures. Tickets, which include wine and food, are $50 for individuals or $75 per couple—with one hundred percent of the proceeds benefiting the Restore the Bayou Canopy Campaign. Following the fundraiser on Nov. 16, all are invited to witness and celebrate the major tree planting on Bayou St. John.
