BRBF invites local businesses to sponsor award-winning event

15th Annual Belly Up with the Bar to be held Friday, Nov. 1


The Baton Rouge Bar Foundation will hold its 15th annual Belly Up with the Bar fundraiser Friday, Nov. 1, 2013. The annual cook-off competition, brew fest and outdoor party will feature live music as well as activities for kids.


Various sponsorship opportunities are available. All proceeds will benefit the Baton Rouge Bar Foundation’s youth education programs.


Belly Up with the Bar will return to its 2012 stomping ground at Live Oak Arabian Stables, 6300 Jefferson Hwy. The venue housed more than 650 attendees at last year’s event and provided ample parking space.


The fundraiser is a collaboration of the Young Lawyers Section of the Baton Rouge Bar Association and the Belly Up with the Bar Committee. Jennifer Racca, Attorney at Law, serves as committee chair and Andrea Knouse of Mayhall and Blaize LLC as vice chair.


The Louisiana State Bar Association recently recognized the Belly Up with the Bar fundraiser with the Young Lawyers Section Service to the Public Award.
