Po-boys from the competition were also auctioned off to the Friends of the Fishermen fund, the officially endorsed fund of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board (LSPMB) that was created as a way to help Louisiana's fishermen in their greatest time of need. Those that took home top donation for the fund were:

The Oyster Jubilee celebrates the local delicacy that is an integral part of the unique culinary culture of Louisiana. 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.
