This is brilliant benevolence. The Home Builders Association of Greater New Orleans has teamed up with Catholic Charities to raffle off boots decorated by celebrities, chefs, sports figures, politicians and others to benefit victims of the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
The raffle happens Sept. 17 to 19 at the inaugural launch of the New Orleans Home + Design Show at the Morial Convention Center. Buy raffle tickets here.
