Culture of Caring - A Time to Give Back

Every year during the holiday season, Royal Sonesta New Orleans partners with Children’s Hospital of New Orleans to give back to the community by collecting toys for the Toy Drop, hosting patients at a special Royal Teddy Bear Tea and by bringing the Royal Teddy Bear Tea to the residents of Children's Hospital.  This collaboration provides not only the patients with unique and memorable Christmas experiences, but also meaningful financial contributions to those who need it most. 

This philanthropic initiative with Children’s Hospital embraces Sonesta’s ‘Culture of Caring’ and has been recognized by the New Orleans City Council. In 2018, Royal Sonesta New Orleans is asking you to open your hearts to contribute to this meaningful cause. For every $5 holiday donation in support of Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, you’ll be entered in a raffle to win a grand prize package. Stay tuned for more details to come!


Each child is invited to "share the magic" of the season by donating a small, unwrapped gift for the Children's Hospital Toy Drop.
