504LIFE was created to assist doctors, nurses, and other essential workers in New Orleans on the front line of the COVID-19 epidemic by raising money to purchase and deliver lifesaving Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for area hospitals and clinics. The Foundation for Louisiana will serve as the benefit’s non-profit fiscal sponsor.
504LIFE producers include the New Orleans natives behind NOISE.World which hosted into Sofa King Fest last month, the co-founder & founding team members of Twitch, and a group of New Orleans most active festival producers, artists and talent managers. Sofa King Fest raised $150,000 directly for musicians in its first 2 weeks and StreamAid raised over $2.7 Million on March 28, 2020, for the WHO COVID-19 Solidarity Fund powered by the United Nations Foundation.
