Youth Oasis Children's Shelter announces date for 6th Annual Celebrity Waiter Roundup


Youth Oasis Children's Shelter is hosting their annual fundraiser, the 6th Annual Celebrity Waiter Roundup, sponsored in part by Southwest Airlines on Tuesday, Oct. 2, from 6-9 pm at the Louisiana Rural Life Museum on Essen.

The event will feature a night of fun including dinner from VooDoo Barbeque, cocktails, and live music by The Drew Danzy Band. There will also be a wine toss, hay pull, VIP bar, craft beer tasting, a live auction, and more all to support Youth Oasis and the at-risk children in our community.

This event is a fantastic way to donate to Youth Oasis Children's Shelter and have a fun night in return. The atmosphere is amazing, the food is wonderful, and the best part is that you are directly helping the at-risk children in our community!

Tickets for the event are $60 per person, $100 a couple, along with sponsorships that begin at $250 and can be purchased online at

Please contact Melissa Keaster at (225) 343-6300 or for more information about this event or sponsorships.

Youth Oasis Children's Shelter is a local non-profit organization in mid-city Baton Rouge. Youth Oasis provides emergency shelter, food, clothing, counseling and other services to runaway and homeless youth ages 10-17 in the Greater Baton Rouge area. Youth Oasis also runs a "transitional living program" for youth ages 16-21, where youth live in a supervised apartment with staff members who help them become self-sufficient members of society and achieve their goals, including graduating from high school, enrolling in college, and/or finding successful and sustainable employment.
