For more than 116 years, Galatoire’s has been committed to the city of New Orleans and supports local causes and cultural programs throughout the community through the Galatoire Foundation, a New Orleans-based, non-profit organization.


This year's Christmas Auction will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021 at Galatoire's Restaurant. Purchase tickets here.

100% of the proceeds from the Christmas and Mardi Gras table auctions will benefit the Galatoire Foundation, Covenant House and Patio Planters of the Vieux Carré

Each year, the Galatoire Foundation holds Christmas and Mardi Gras table auctions to assist in supporting local nonprofit organizations. Started in 2006, the Christmas and Mardi Gras table auctions have raised more than $2.2 million for local charities. Each fun and lively auction allows guests the opportunity to reserve a table on Galatoire’s famed first floor the Fridays before Christmas and Mardi Gras. Those attending this year’s event will be required to wear masks as the health and safety of Galatoire’s patrons, community and staff remains priority, as it always has.

Since the inception, all proceeds have benefitted nearly two dozen New Orleans-area charitable organizations, from neighborhood rebuilding projects and crime prevention to youth programs and entrepreneurship efforts. Past recipients have included Dress for Success, Audubon Nature Institute, Liberty’s Kitchen, The Idea Village, The New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation and more. The Galatoire Foundation has been dedicated to giving back to the New Orleans community and region that has patronized Galatoire’s for generations.


Purchase tickets to the Christmas Auction here. For more information, call (504) 525-2021.

The Galatoire Foundation is dedicated to the people of New Orleans and will leave a legacy on a region that has patronized Galatoire’s for generations.
