The Tres Doux Foundation is the charitable arm of Beignet Fest. The foundation’s mission is to celebrate, embrace and enhance the lives of children with developmental delays and disabilities by presenting them as whole beings, and to support organizations that do the same.

Every life changed by the Tres Doux Foundation begins with YOU.

The 2021 Beignet Fest was cancelled, but we are festing in place on Saturday, Sept. 25th at local food vendors. If you planned to buy a ticket to the original event, we ask you to consider donating that money to our foundation so we can make grants this year.

“Through our journey with our son, we found a gap in programs for children on the autism spectrum, and we wanted to change that.”

- Sherwood Collins, Beignet Fest Founder

The main diagnosis for children with a development delay is autism. Today, it is estimated that 1 in 54 children is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. (Centers for Disease Control) Autism is a complex brain disorder that inhibits a person’s ability to communicate and develop social relationships, and is often accompanied by behavioral challenges.
