Kicking off the Holiday Season!

On December 1, 2023  the Al Copeland Foundation and Jefferson Parish will be turning on the Christmas lights at Lafreniere Park.

At dusk the lights will come on at Lafreniere Park and the longtime tradition of driving through the beautiful light displays will begin. The holiday lights exhibit features LED lights with fantastic displays. Don’t forget to check out the 60 foot Sea Serpent in the lagoon, the elegant princess in her illuminated, magical castle, or the New Orleans Saints players with the Lombardi Trophy. Bring the entire family to enjoy the sparkling display.

Throughout the park there will be ACF yard signs with QR codes. All money raised goes to the Al Copeland Foundation Patient Assistance Fund at Children’s Hospital of New Orleans.

Ever Dollars Goes to Making a Difference

The pediatric cancer patient assistance fund was established to help ease the financial burden facing families of children diagnosed with cancer, with an emphasis on children who are enrolled in a cancer clinical trial. Money from this fund is awarded to families in the form of grants. These grants are then put towards expenses such as household bills, transportation, food, supplemental medicine, lodging and other necessary expenses that are incurred by families paying for cancer medical treatment.

How does your money help…

$25 – Assistance with supplemental medications

$50 – Helps a family with travel expenses

$100 – Helps with groceries for a month

$250 – Assistance with household bills

$500 – Assistance with rent or mortgage
