Copeland’s of New Orleans Celebrates 9 Days of Christmas in July

NEW ORLEANS – Copeland’s of New Orleans will kick off nine days of Christmas in Big Al Style, beginning on June 28 – Al Copeland Day, which was proclaimed by Louisiana Governor Buddy Romer in 1989. The kickoff will start with a delivery of gifts and necessities to Children’s Hospital. The nine-day celebration will end on July 6 – National Fried Chicken Day.

“Christmas holds a special place in the hearts of so many who remember my dad, with countless families visiting his house as part of their holiday tradition,” said Al Copeland Jr. “In honor of him and those cherished memories, we are thrilled to celebrate 9 Days of Christmas, bringing joy and support to the children and families at Children’s Hospital. It’s a beautiful way to continue his legacy of generosity and love.”

Copeland’s Restaurants are proud to honor Al Copeland’s legacy with a special nine days of Christmas celebration. As part of this celebration, Al Copeland Jr. will deliver gifts of toys, clothing, art supplies, gift cards and more to children receiving cancer treatment at Children’s Hospital. In addition, each Copeland’s Restaurant will donate $1 from every purchase of the special Christmas Cookie Cheesecake or Spicy Fried Chicken to the Al Copeland Foundation Patient Assistance Fund. Guests can also make monetary donations, which will be matched by the Copeland Family of Restaurants, on the bottom of your check that go directly to the fund at Children’s Hospital.

The Patient Assistance Fund, launched in 2022, has accumulated $258,000 available for families at Children’s Hospital and has directly assisted 33 families. This significant achievement is a testament to the unwavering support of our donors and the foundation’s commitment to eliminating barriers to the best cancer care available. It supports families whose children are undergoing cancer treatment at Children’s Hospital New Orleans. The primary focus is to alleviate financial burdens by providing grants that cover a spectrum of expenses, including household bills, transportation, food, supplemental medicine, and lodging.

The Al Copeland Foundation was established in 2008 to honor Al Copeland Sr.’s final wish – to save lives and end cancer – and has since raised $5.1 million in that fight. The foundation’s partnership with the LSU Health Sciences Center for Cancer Immunotherapy is investing in innovative research and treatment. This partnership has led to 5 cancer free patients, demonstrating the significant impact of the Foundation’s work. It has also expanded access to innovative clinical trials across the Gulf Coast, providing hope and opportunities for cancer patients in the region.
