Four Lafayettte bartenders decided that they would like to spend two weeks volunteering for those less fortunate. Amy Menard and Heather Guidroz will be volunteering at an orphanage from May 12 to the 24th in Katmandu, Nepal. They are working with International Volunteer in the United States and with their sister program Hope & Home in Nepal. While Amy and Heather are in Nepal, Christina McHugh and Jessica Prejean will be volunteering at an orphanage and hospital in Costa Rica. To help them make money for their expenses, Legend's Downtown will be open Sunday, April 18th from 3pm-12am. There will be a Silent Auction, delicious food by the one and only Pugs, and music by The Josh Taylor band who have graciously donated their time. All tips are going to the cause as well, so don’t be afraid to be overly gratuitous. More information can be found here .
If you would like to donate but cannot make the party, please contact Christina McHugh at
