LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) — Healing House has announced its 2023 ABSOLUT Best Martini Tour lineup.

Each week starting June 20, eight of Lafayette’s most popular restaurants will showcase their best martini creations as a benefit for Healing House; Hope for Grieving Children. The tour ends August 15.

Every Tuesday, guests will receive a $2 signature martini with the purchase of an entrée at the week’s highlighted Tini Tuesday Tour stop. Proceeds from each martini purchased are donated directly to benefit Healing House.

A private event was held yesterday at the Mercedes Benz of Lafayette’s Showroom to unveil the 2023 martini glass designed by artist Candace Greer. Those who donate $100 will receive two hand-painted martini glasses, a signed print by Greer and access to an online silent auction. The Martinis 2023 online auction will be open from August 14-19.

All proceeds from Martinis 2023 will benefit local families in Acadiana that have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or significant person in their life.
