In 2019, the Mande Milkshakers brought the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event to Mandeville and we kicked it off with a bang. Over 150 participants helped us raise over $6,500 for Safe Harbor Northshore with this fun and exciting event. The Mande Milkshakers knew right then that Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Mandeville would be something the community would look forward to each year.
Every year since, even in the pandemic, the Walk a Mile Mandeville event has grown larger. The support from this community for Safe Harbor and the Mande Milkshakers is amazing. We have raised $25,000 for Safe Harbor since 2019 and we’re looking to grow that total even more this year but we need YOUR help!

Don’t let this event pass without being a part of standing up and walking for THIS important cause. The women in your life deserve it.
Safe Harbor is a non-profit, non-government agency in St. Tammany Parish serving survivors and their minor children who are victims of domestic abuse. We can provide a safe place to stay and a variety of critical support services ranging from crisis intervention, legal advocacy, playgroups, emotional support, and community-based referrals for kids.
The Mande Milkshakers is the Northshore’s first marching group and women’s organization. With over 80 members, the ladies work year round promoting the pillars of Fun, Friendship, Fitness, and Philanthropy through community and charity events.
While many of the group’s appearances are to support other charitable organizations, the Mande Milkshakers organize and host several events of their own in order to promote causes in St. Tammany near and dear to their heart.
Since 2016, the Mande Milkshakers supported local organizations at over 100 events, served over 1000 hours of volunteer service, and raised over $60,000 for various charities through organizational philanthropic efforts. This big hearted group of ladies believes the excitement of performing is second only to the joys of giving.
