Saturday, October 18, 2014

The Junior League of New Orleans is celebrating the continued rebirth of Metropolitan New Orleans by planning its annual 5K race along Freret Street, beginning and ending at our Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Store.

Since 1960, JLNO has been a member of the Freret community with its Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Store and believes this exciting event will further encourage the health and wellness of the City’s citizens and businesses.  The Freret 5K is a family friendly event that fosters a sense of community among all ages and enables the area’s residents and business owners to share their neighborhood pride. 

Participation in the 5K or fun run includes
