Those that took home top donation for the fund were:

In addition to the competition, the Jubilee featured the Longest Oyster Po-Boy, built by over 30 of New Orleans' renowned restaurants. The colossal po-boy was stuffed with 5,500 Louisiana harvested oysters and sprawled across 340 feet of Bourbon Street.
