On November 15, 2015, a group of LSU public relations students will host “Raise the Roof,” a fundraising event where proceeds will be divided among three local nonprofits.
Raise the Roof will be held at Tin Roof Brewery from 12-4 p.m. The fundraising event will be the first of its kind: it is hosted by LSU students and three local nonprofits will come together for the betterment of Baton Rouge youth.
The campaign and event planning process started on the first day of classes where the Manship students divided the class into three parts and formed their own respective PR agencies. The firms were then assigned their own nonprofit where they were to research the nonprofit and plan the event accordingly.
Raise the Roof will benefit local nonprofits Capital Area Special Olympics of Louisiana (CASOL), the Big Buddy Program and Youth Oasis Children’s Shelter. All of these local charities benefit children and young adults across the capital area.
The event will feature a live DJ, drinks, food provided by popular food trucks, and games for the whole family. Attendees can also bet on silent auction items and experiences, and those profits will also benefit the nonprofits. Also, attendees will be given the opportunity to contribute open donations in the donation buckets that will be placed inside Tin Roof.
Raise the Roof will be an unforgettable experience where families and Baton Rouge community members can enjoy a Sunday afternoon of giving back.
