 The Moveable Feast is designed to raise funds and awareness for Best Buddies Louisiana's friendship and leadership development programs for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs). All proceeds from the evening support programs in Louisiana.

Historic Perkins Road Overpass Area Merchants Reunite For Second Annual “Moveable Feast” Benefiting Best Buddies Louisiana 

Merchants and Restaurants in the Perkins Road Overpass area are working together to offer a unique dining experience on Thursday, APRIL 22, 2010 to benefit Best Buddies Louisiana.  The second annual Moveable Feast is a progressive dinner where guests will sample and savor delectable food, experience some of Baton Rouge’s finest entertainment and enjoy late-evening shopping at some of the popular shops in the Historic Perkins Road Merchant’s District.
All proceeds from the evening benefit Best Buddies Louisiana, an international nonprofit, founded in 1989 by Anthony K. Shriver, whose mission is dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

“More than 50% of people with intellectual disabilities have never had a visit from someone outside of a paid caregiver or a family member,” said Tiffany Rutledge, State Director of Best Buddies Louisiana.  “Best Buddies Louisiana provided 300 one-to-one friendships last year.  Next year, we will provide more, and Moveable Feast 2010 will help us do it.  Growing funds as we grow fun.” Awareness and funds raised from this event will provide friendships for people with intellectual disabilities right here in Louisiana.

Some participating restaurants and merchants include Chelsea’s CafĂ©, Zippy’s, Schlittz & Giggle’s, DiGiulio Brothers, Pinetta’s European Restaurant, BET-R Grocery, Ivar’s Sports Bar and Grill, Zee Zee Gardens, Royal Standard and Cottonwood Books. 
To purchase tickets ($35 in advance/ $40 on night of event) for the Moveable Feast or call 225-226-1677.
