Fund the Fleet Night at Andy's Bistro

Andy's Bistro, located at 3322 N. Turnbull Dr., in Metairie, is hosting a special Fund the Fleet Night on Monday, Nov. 6 from 4:30 - 9 p.m., to help raise money and awareness for this year's hospital charity of choice.

10% of all money raised throughout the night will go directly towards the “Fund the Fleet” campaign, which aims to raise money for two state-of-the-art ambulances for EJGH EMS over the next two years. The Foundation is leading the charge through the Uniteam giving campaign, which gives Team Members an opportunity to directly impact the care the hospital delivers.

All Team Members, their families and the community are invited to attend!
