NEW ORLEANS - The Baton Rouge community is getting a little help from Beyonce's family - mother Tina, sister Solange and friend Kelly Rowland - in its recovery after devastating flooding in August left many homeless.

Tina Knowles-Lawson, Solange Knowles and Rowland, with support from Beyonce's #BeyGOOD Charitable Foundation, are hosting "Love on Louisiana: An Essence Hometown Heroes Tribute" scheduled Nov. 20 in partnership with Essence Inc., the state of Louisiana and city of Baton Rouge.

The invitation-only dinner and awards ceremony being held at Raising Cane's River Center will honor 400 teachers and students for their commitment to serving and rebuilding the community.

Organizers also hope to raise $1 million to help offset the housing crisis brought on by the flood for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge.
